My Review:

I love this paper quality! The pen test is amazing and you can’t even see any ghosting for any of the pens – even the wettest inks. The lines in this are dashed and gray, so they have a subtle appearance. There are 23 lines spaced 8mm – so it’s definitely wide-ruled. I suspect I got a bad apple in this notebook because I haven’t seen any mention of the problem in any reviews – but the cover is slightly askew. It’s like it was accidentally glued on crooked so it sits back from the page edge by a tiny bit. Once I fill it up and start using it, I’m sure that wouldn’t be an issue, but it’s something to note. The pen loop on the spine is interesting and clever. I like the concept, but you pretty much can’t open the book to use it if there’s a pen in that loop, so it becomes impractical for those of us who use more than one pen during a planning session.  The cover has a suede-like finish. It’s soft to the touch but very rigid for a solid hardcover.  Overall, a very good notebook.

NEW – this notebook is now available in black with a faux leather cover.  Lemome has been adding and expanding their lineup of products over the past few months and it looks like BLUE and maybe (probably not) GREEN are also on the way. Stalk their Instagram account to see what they’re up to.

And if you missed it… I did a review of the Lemome Pre-Printed Calendars that are now available in the same style as this journal (Classic). Check out that review at: Lemome 2018 Planner Review
