I bought 1 of these notebooks upon request from a co-worker. After having to fold many 11x17 pages to fit an 8 1/2x12 notebook.......finding these longer notebooks was AWESOME! Saves me, along with my co-workers quite a bit of time. We send these notebooks out to jobsites and find the recipients to appreciate not having to unfold the pages (as they would have to do if we put 11x17 pages in a smaller notebook). Well worth the extra $$$!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
