First, it took at least 4 weeks to arrive which I wasn't expecting. As others have mentioned the pages are all stuck together at the binding so you can't flip a page without tears all along the binding. Finally, I have had it about two weeks and the pen already broke. Like the idea in theory but will be exploring a higher quality product.
The pen writes so smoothly. The pages erase really well... You do have to erase them within a month or it stains the page a little, but still fades enough to use the page again. Would not suggest the Elfinbook app, but there are other apps that are useful (I used Notebloc for simplicity).
I rlly appreciate being able to reuse these pages and easily upload my work so that I can organise it with my related digital files all in the same place. The only downsides for me currently involve the gel pen (ofc) smudging as I'm writing (but I spose I will adapt my writing?) and wiping away individual sentences etc. not being a very smooth process.
I have already recommended this notebook to friends :))
I seriously cannot express enough how much I love this book. I bought a few Rocketbooks first, but they don't even remotely compare. It feels so smooth and good writing on the Elfinbook's pages, and more importantly, the pages come completely clean when you want them to. I'm talking a whole year or more later, you can erase each little mark of ink and have the pages looking brand new. Every time I need to take a note, journal about a dream, write down some questions...you name it, I'm reaching for my Elfinbook. I GOTTA get more as soon as possible. In fact, let me just go write that down on my "to buy" list in the Elfinbook. :p
I enjoy especially when sketching
