Finally, a spiral-bound notebook lefties will love

NEWS – As the mother of a left-handed daughter, I’ve listened to years of complaints about regular ring binders and spiral notebooks.  The rings or the spiral gets in the way of her writing, making taking notes uncomfortable.  Especially in the earlier years, she had to have a spiral-bound notebook for each of her classes, so she was stuck using the notebooks she hated.

A couple of years ago, I found some top-bound spiral notebooks with college-ruled notebook paper inside.  She could finally use a notebook easily without the rings or spiral getting in her way.  Amazon has the Mead Cambridge top-bound notebooks for sale now.  The books are filled with 8.5″ x 11″ college-ruled, 20 lb. white paper, with 70 perforated sheets (140 pages) per pad.  The overall size is 8.55″ x 12.62″.  The notebook has a heavy-duty front cover and a stiff cardboard back for a sturdy writing surface even without a desk.

Amazon makes the Mead Cambridge top-bound notebooks available for $2.45 as an add-on to a purchase of at least $25.00.  If you need wide-ruled pages, Amazon offers a set of four wide-ruled, top-bound notebooks for $15.00.  See both options of the Mead Cambridge top-bound spiral notebooks at Amazon.

  2. Been there, done that bought the T-Shirt(s). Now late into middle age I would say to lefties like me: embrace technology, use a keyboard/mouse and use dictation. Printing skills are all that required these days, and perhaps a cursive signature but I suspect the need for these will be gone in a few years. Don’t clutter the growing mind with useless skills particularly when they are so frustrating to acquire for left handed people.
