Today, I received a SINGLE COMPOSITION BOOK for nearly 5.00. That's not okay. I would have bought these in the store, but I had a donated gift card to get supplies for my head start class. NOW my students will have no journals until I finally get a paycheck.
More than 20 years ago, Mead Composition books were everywhere in middle school. These were the laptops of the day and back then I used the first-generation Pilot V5 pen in conjunction with these notebooks. And now, more than 20 years later, I've found the Pilot Precise V5 Stick Rolling Ball Pens, Extra Fine Point, Blue Ink, Dozen Box (35335) and the updated Mead Composition Book, college ruled this time around, to be a perfect match for my use. I needed a notebook for making notes to myself, writing ideas, and taking inventory of life. I only recently found that "disposable writings" such as these are better suited to writing long hand, rather than electronically. And having used more expensive notebooks in the past, I found the current-generation Mead Composition book to work perfectly for me.
Compared to the others (Moleskine, Clairefontaine, Rhodia)
About a decade ago I started using other brands of notebooks, first it was Moleskine which was decent and had some nice touches. However, I cannot currently recommend the Moleskine Cahier Journal (Set of 3), Pocket, Ruled, Kraft Brown, Soft Cover (3.5 x 5.5): set of 3 Ruled Journals as the paper has become rather cheap and the price does not justify the quality, for my needs at least. The Mead Composition book has thicker pages and more quality feeling pages than the Moleskine notebooks, hands down. The same is true for the Moleskine monthly planner in the large size, it is a huge disappointment because the pages are thin and ink bleeds through.
Clairefontaine and Rhodia notebooks are top quality, buttery soft pages, solid bindings, made in France, and I highly recommend these notebooks if money is no object and the notebooks are being used for an important purpose. The quality is the highest I've found in notebooks, however, they are four to five times the price of the Mead Composition book and currently too much for my needs.
Best value out
I became interested in these Mead Composition books after seeing a crowdfunding campaign to bring back higher quality composition books. I learned about the rich history of the black and white cover of the original composition book decades ago. However, the crowdfunding price was nearly $20 for each notebook, so I found that for my use, the Mead Composition book is perfect. The cover isn't thick and hard like it was years ago, the pages are rather cheap, but they are thick thus preventing bleeding from my Pilot V5 pens. The pages do wrinkle easily, but I did count 100 pages, seeing how some other reviewers didn't have all 100 pages. The binding and durability doesn't seem that great, so I would give the quality of the notebook and pages 3 stars out of five, though it is fine for my needs.
While the more expensive French competition has much better quality, for a disposable/idea notebook for $1.99, the Mead Composition Book cannot be beat based on price and nostalgia factor. Highly recommended.
