I LOVE the diary but find the same problem with the padlock--it's in the way. But the diary itself is beautiful--looks like real leather with a padded cover and adequate space for writing. I like the fact that it lies flat when open so that you can write it in easily. So glad you now have them back!

Requiring key not an improvement
I have been writing in your 5-yesr diaries since 2003. Although I am happy to have another one I would prefer the former clasp style lock. The new style requires a key for the padlock and I would prefer to be able to close it without locking it.

I had trouble finding a new 5 yr journal . The manager at my local Hallmark store told me to try CR GIBson. I checked 1 st in October and Apparently 5 year journals had been discontinued but I was told later that they were bringing them back the middle of January. I was happy when it arrived. I found it interesting that it wasn't ready to go before the 1 st of January. I like it . It looks nice. I guess my only complaint is that my pen bleeds through sometimes.
