I got several of the Leveret notebooks. I am a writer so I have to take down notes during interviews and this notebook is a handy companion. It measures 4.25 x 7.5 inches so it fits snugly in any of my bags. It is not too heavy to carry either.
And I like the fact that it is spring-bound for easy flipping through the pages and I can easily tear out a page if I need, too. The covers are made of hard translucent plastic so the inside pages are protected from the mess that I have in my bag. They come in very attractive colors, too, like sky blue, orange, yellow, and apple green. I have the orange and the blue ones.
Additionally, I like its white pages and the sheets are easy to write on. I cannot say if the material is recycle, it does not say on the package. But I think they use new paper on this one.
