- "Ideal notebook for a budding lyricist" - By Helen M. Davis (Los Angeles, CA)I purchased this for a 12-yr-old aspiring lyricist, who is currently writing lyrics on everything and anything, when he is not playing computer games.

- I am a songwriter and I needed the prefect book to write my lyrics in instead of just a plain old notebook and I do not use the computer anymore since about 300 of my song got deleted.

I purchased this book for my daughter, who wanted a songwriting book to write down her song ideas. She doesn't know yet how to write music, but I will teach her in time.

The book is constructed durably and the pages will never fall out. The front is shiny and I love the design on on the cover. The inscription/writing however is not as legible as ... full review
