Thiese Penway Composition Notebooks are my favorite items to keep both in college and in the home.  They are sturdy and very affordable.  They are great for writing, and I don't have a problem with these notebooks at all.  I recommend them to all.

I think these journals are great for personal use, and any notes that you plan on keeping IN the journal. The only complaint is that it is really difficult to cleanly rip out pages if you need to. Also the pages don’t have holes so not appropriate to organize in binders!

I have tons of these and I use them for everything. Some are full of ideas, some journals, some recipes, some poetry. You name it I have a composition notebook for it. The bindings are a lot stronger than any spiral notebook. The pages will definitely stay put. Stock up when they drop in price right before a school-year starts. Some classes require them from middle school through college but this is my favorite brand. I feel like ink sets a little faster on these. Don't count on being able to tear out a page you don't want, you'll be pretty stuck with them.

I'm right handed, but I have two left handed kids, so those "normal" notebooks-Spirals- mark up their arms and habd with little metal lines. Their options are limited with spirals- they either have to deal with it, and after some time, their skin gets sore - or they have to learn to write with their arms in a half circle - which makes their wrist sore. Composition notebooks are a *little* better, they eliminate the skin irritation, but the pages don't rip out that well, and they sometimes begin to come apart. That aside, they do prefer composition books over spirals!

Every school year my kids needs a couple of composition notebooks. I purchased Penway Composition Notebook at Wal-Mart #2748 a few years ago because they were 2 for $1.00. They only needed 4 but I bought 10 because the price was so cheap. I recommend these every year to my family and friends.

Always keep extra in hand. The school always wants the kid to have at least a good 6 in the beginning of the school year. Stock up on these babies on back to school week! My husband uses this all the time for daily notes. At .50 cents not like you're breaking the back when it's not back to school season, they are priced at 1.50 Perfectly awesome for you're daily journal.

I remember being a kid and always wanting the composition books. I thought they were way cooler than regular spiral notebooks. I used these alot in high school because they stay bound and its hard for pages to come out. I still use some around my house to this day. I love all the different colors and wide lines for writing. They are fairly inexpensive and can even be bought at the dollar tree for $1.

Great for home school and work. I keep a notebook of several different things and these are great . The pages do not get tired of hanging on and just fall out like with wire bound notebooks. The covers are not flimsy and work great with being in backpacks or shelved.

These are great composition notebooks.  The covers are very sturdy, which was what I was looking for as my 9 year old had to have 6 of them for school this year.  She decorated them with washi tape, duck tape and stickers and they look amazing.  She has one at home too for journaling and her "diary".  Great price.  I purchased mine at Walmart.

These composition books are wonderful for personal use.  They are cheap,  but also with the, being cheap they do seem to fall apart easily.  They work for my use,  but if your expecting long term use you would be disappointed.  I can't say I would recommend them to everyone as it depends on what the intended use of them are.
