I bought this book after much debate, and after my first scrapbook, a postbound, from walmart started falling apart with just the first handful of pages in it. This Share and Tell albums 3 ring binder is exactly as described: Its beautiful, well-made, and pleasant to hold. The protectors it comes with seem very well made and sturdy. It took a while to find this book, but I'm glad I waited!! It will make a beautiful wedding scrapbook for my husband & myself. I'll definitely be buying this brand in the future!!
