I have been using various versions of Northbooks notebooks for different purposes for a couple years now. I haven’t been disappointed in any of them, but this is my favorite for overall journaling.
The coptic-style binding allows the book to lay truly flat, and the numbering on the pages saves me some time for indexing purposes. The dots and numbers, while subtle, are distinct enough to be seen clearly even in lower light.
On top of all this, the cover is heavy enough to provide a good backing for writing without a firm table or desk to lean on.
I’ve had this book for a couple weeks, used it pretty heavily, and it’s holding up really well. Good thing I got the 3-pack right off the bat!
