    Yesterday I went down to my local Office Max for some school supplies, as school starts TOMORROW! :shocked: :evil: I was looking for my usual Five Star notebooks, when all of a sudden, BAM! :eek: :shock: I see these beautiful notebooks in black with a black and reck checkered strap (similar to that of moleskines). This thing was heavy duty! So I bought some. :-X
    THESE THINGS ARE COOL! :beanie: and they also say Made in Germany on the front. :whee: :gimme: Anyone else have any experience?

    I had one...aren't they different sizes than we're use to? Not a huge deal, but if you wanted to use their larger one and put the pages into a US binder, it woudl be too long, I think. But for just a notebook, I think that the quality is pretty good.

    In university we used the a4 hardcover books as project books and they seemed good - solid and nice paper.

    I do have a smaller notebook which I carried for a while as a personal notebook, same hardcover but a lot smaller in size. slightly too big for my pockets, but had held up fairly well considering how much it has been dragged around, though the outer paper layer from the spine seems to have fallen off - it still works perfectly though, and really looks as good as I would expect a card cover to look after long carry.

    I've found Real Life a heck of a lot harder than school. It's a lot easier to succeed in school.

    And lots of times the work was a lot more interesting, especially in college!

    High school...eh, a grind. Be grateful you won't need to know trigonometry to pay your bills!

    I have 2. One with the poly cover, and one I bought for $2.00 at Office Depot. It is 8x11 or so, and is spire bound hard cover.
