5 Year Journal Poem
My five year journal, is forever eternal
A story untold, with meanings to unfold
Forever my own, a stepping stone
Myself I hope to learn, with no sad return
Forever eternal, will live my journal

An easy journal to use
In 2015 I will start using my second of these journals, having kept my first one for the last 5 years. This is the perfect journal for someone who enjoys the idea of keeping a daily journal but may be daunted by the idea of filling a full page a day. This five-year journal allows you to write a short entry every day. As you fill it, you can easily see what you were doing on the same day a year, two, or more ago. I found I often used it as a reference to check the date of an event. It is well made, with a study cover and good qualty paper. The one I'm about to complete looks almost as good as the new one I just received! Highly recommended.

Will you want this in 5 years?
If you plan on keeping a journal for 5 years, and will be looking at it everyday during that time, wouldn't you want it to look nice? That is one of the main reasons I chose this journal, that and the size.
I admit I haven't used this journal yet, so I can't speak to the quality. Only time will tell if it holds up. But from what I can tell it's exactly what I was looking for. It's the right size, has a classy cover with my initials on it, and it's lined yet simple on the inside.
After looking around quite a bit and not finding anything like this, I knew I wanted it. Especially because it's almost 2015 and I plan on keeping my first 5 year journal from 2015-20. This is something I have to be ok with looking at for 5 years. I have to want to come back to it over and over--maybe I'm just really picky about my journals. If you think about it that way, it justifies the price. Overall this one seems just right.

At 5 7/8" wide, it is larger than other 5-year journals I have seen in bookstores. Also, the hardback cover makes it easier to sribe all the funny and interesting occurences of daily life.

Carrying On A Tradition
My 93 year old uncle recently gave me his lifetime of 5-year diaries which dated from 1932-2011. In his diaries we have entries that recorded such events as the kidnapping of the Lindberg baby and the change in power from Von Hindenberg to Hitler. These major events were woven together with the day-to-day events of life on a North Dakota cattle ranch. My grandmother and grandfather also kept diaries, but unfortunately these have been lost to us. I had been looking for a 5-Year diary for a long time and then I ran across this Levenger product. I purchased one for each of my siblings and for myself. I started mine on January 1, 2014. And now I can look back over my year with such gratitude that I have been able to carry on this wonderful family tradition. Thank you!

I bought one for myself (already retired) and for a dear friend who is retiring in December. Had both monogrammed! Looking forward to sharing my memories of involvement in the community now that I have more time!

Handy and helpful
In the past I've mostly purchased pens and the great writing tablets, but this item intrigued me. Never kept a diary and journaling always seemed like a tedious chore. What I like most about this is they layout. It's pretty easy to come up with two to three sentences daily and the format allows you to look back and see what was happening on that day in the past. (I had some pages come loose from the binding which is the only reason I'm not giving this 5-stars across the board)

Practical, Handsome Journal
I've always found journaling to be difficult, so this journal is a good first step. Five lines is a lot less intimidating that a whole page. My wife and I complete the day's entry after putting our son to bed each night. Very pleased with the quality as well.

A journey through a five year journal
This was a gift purchase for a graduate. I am hoping she will be encouraged to record the special moments of each day as she pursues her dreams. At the end of the five years, who knows what changes my occur, all or the better I hope!
This is truly a gift for anyone, not least yourself, to record your thoughts and special moments.

Very nice quality. Still looks nice even after my husband spilled red wine on it. Perfect for keeping track of those things like how long has it been since I've been to the doctor.if you want to record long , soulful thoughts, you need a different kind of journal.
