I never want to use another notebook!

This is the absolute perfect notebook for this lefty. The lay-flat design means I never have to worry about spines getting in the way of my hand as I write, and the book stays open for me as I reference it throughout the day. I went to restock my stash today and I am so nervous that they are out of stock -- please bring them back, Northbooks!

I am hooked. No other journal will do!

🌟 FIVE STARS🌟 I simply cannot imagine using any other journal. Love the feel of the pages, page numbering, the dotted lines, AND the binding - the fact that this notebook that captures all is flat. I don’t have to *wrestle* with it with one arm/elbow as I pen my thoughts, a seemingly small but important product detail!

My favorite notebook

Of all the notebooks that I've used or looked at, this one is my favorite. I tried several different brands, but when I tried this one, it was the end of a search. It is thin and light-weight. The pages are numbered. The dots aren't too dark. And it opens flat easily and can be folded back completely when writing without a table. I think northbooks made the perfect notebook. I hope they keep this one going for a long time. I'm a bit nervous because it is out of stock.

One of my most favorite notebooks

This is a great notebook for me and one I continually reorder. The covers are firm but flexible. The layflat binding is the best I've found to avoid the distractions of holding other notebooks open to the right page.

They have numbered pages!

And lie perfectly flat. The paper quality is really nice, it's smooth, takes ink well without ghosting, and the dots are faint enough to fade into the background without being so faint I have to use a spotlight to find them. The dots are perfectly aligned between pages, and it's just a really well-made Bullet Journal with all things that make it easy to set up my own layouts. The covers are thick enough to provide support for writing against, but not so thick they're heavy or stab me through a backpack the way some hardcovers do. I'm grateful I get to buy something made in the US that's of really good quality.

Minimalist Design. Maximum Quality.

Our books are printed with recycled paper that resists feathering, ghosting, and bleeding without any extra bulk. Our paper is thick, smooth, and acid-free. The soft cream color makes for an elegant, easy to read backdrop for journaling, sketching, creating to do lists, shopping lists, or simple weekly planning.
