"It's pretty, but not useable. It's too narrow to be able to put the check register in the top part - I've totally wrinkled and destroyed mine trying to get it in there. And it's so thick that it won't close. Very disappointing purchase."
"I had the same problem as someone else in that the check register and checks would not slide in easily. To solve the problem, I cut about one fourth inch off the very back of both items and they slid in easily without all the frustration and bending up the paper. The leather checkbook cover itself seemed rather stiff at first but now that it has been used for some time and now that the other 2 items slip in easily the cover works very nicely."
