Customer questions about this product

What color should I expect the cover of this memo book to be?
The cover color of this memo book will vary.
What types of ruled paper are there?
The most commonly used ruled papers include wide, college, narrow, quadrille, Gregg, and Pitman ruled. Wide, or legal, ruled paper features a larger 11/32" space between horizontal lines on a sheet. Typically, wide ruled paper is preferred by users with larger handwriting, as well as in schools with younger children. Both college, or medium, and narrow ruled paper have a smaller space between lines. College rule paper has a 9/32" space, which allows for more lines on a page, and is often preferred by users with smaller handwriting. Similarly, narrow rule paper has a 1/4" space between lines.

Quadrille ruled paper is used for graphing and drawing. It features both horizontal and vertical lines evenly space across the page, creating a sheet of same-sized squares. Gregg ruled paper has historically been used for shorthand writing. It has 11/32" space between lines, and features a single margin line down the middle of the sheet. Pitman ruled paper is also used for shorthand writing, but it has 1/2" space between lines in addition to the single margin line down the middle of the sheet.

A memo book is something I always carry around in my pocket. It's important for me to jot down quick notes and be organized, and I like that it's bound along the long end, since I can easily flip through the pages

This little notebook is perfect for making a grocery list. It easily fits in your pocket or purse. I find it a lot easier to be able to cross off my list in this notebook then just bring on a single sheet of paper to the grocery store.

This National five inch by three inch color wirebound sixty sheet memo book is great. I felt the sturdiness and durability were better than advertised on the product description. The size is perfect for lists, recipes and even daily notes. I would recommend these to anyone.

Jason M. on 07/09/2017

Another great National product that is low-cost and fits our needs. I am a believer that you cant have enough pens and paper lying around as it seems they often disappear! This is a sturdy wire bound memo book will come in handy for those on the go notes.

Ann A. on 04/07/2017

This small memo book started to be in my handbag. Whenever i remember something that i should buy, i write it down in this small memo book not to forget. When i go to market for shopping i take out my small memo book and do not forget what i need to buy. It is very usefull for me. I am an old schooled person, it is easier for me to write it down instead of taking note in my smart phone. It also has nice color and good quality
