Yup, with a regular journal, your pages will fall apart when you roll it up, fold it back, open it wide & push it flat on the table. Sure you can use scotch tape to put everything back together (or risk losing the pages and use oft-cited "my dog ate my homework" excuse). OR, you can simply use the Zequenz 360 Roll-Up Journal with its unique glue binding which allows for a complete 360 degree opening with perfect writing comfort in every movement & occasion. Roll it, fold it, open it wide & press it flat on the table, the pages in Roll-Up Journal will stay intact, guaranteed. Sorry, but you simply can't blame it on your dog any longer.
