ColoringNotebook: Paper Notebook with Coloring Pages for Adults - Review

I received product for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Adult coloring books are all the rage.  I jumped on that bandwagon last year and love it.  I find coloring to be therapeutic and relaxing. 

Now you can find an assortment of merchandise for adult coloring.  There's canvases, wallpaper, notebooks and more. 
I recently received the ColoringNotebook for review, and love how it incorporates my hobby of coloring in a unique way.  ColoringNotebook is a compact paper notebook filled with more than fifty original coloring pages. It is put together real well and isn't some run-of-the mill notebook. 
The ColoringNotebook is a thread-bound, 176-page notebook, featuring a back cover pocket.  

The book has a hard cover with rounded corners, an elastic closure and an expandable inner pocket. It also includes a yellow ribbon bookmark.
You can order the ColoringNotebook in one of three types of paper - ruled, dot grid, or blank.  I received the one with ruled pages.  The coloring designs are very detailed and pretty.  There's an assorted selection of scenes to color.  For instance, there's a page of buttons, one of fruit in jars, and another of cats in a library.  There's even a few where the scenes span two pages.  A lot of detail and creativity have went in to the pages to be colored.  All of the pages I've started on are "Works in Progress" and I haven't actually completed a whole picture yet but it's been fun taking some downtime to color in the pages.  
The Japanese paper is acid-free and thicker than regular notebook paper.  The pages are not perforated.  Colored pencils have worked best for me when coloring in the notebook.  Markers tend to bleed through. 

The ColoringNotebook is well-made and finely developed.  I hope the company comes out with more of them, expanding upon an already great idea.

This sounds like it would be right up my alley! Seriously with my love of writing and my love of coloring combined in one easy-to-access place? I'm pretty sure I'll be looking into one (or more) of these!

I still haven't tried an adult coloring book so I think I might try one of these! Looks like a nice product.

Beautiful! I'm an elementary school teacher, so I get to color a lot...but sometimes I'd rather color more "grown-up" scenes like these.
