I just wanted to mention to potential purchasers that the product description on this item is incorrect--this item has 50 sheets per pad, not 500. Some person obviously made a typo, it happens. You can actually zoom in on the picture and you will see the number is correct there 50 (pages). It would be nice to get 500 pages at this price but then again we would probably be living in the 1800's if that price / page count were correct, so I'll pass! Other than that this is good newsprint that I've been using for rough drafts of paintings that I eventually will paint. I use graphite pencils from 3H to 3B on this paper without any problems. Any harder than 3H a sharp led wants to go through the newsprint if you apply enough pressure to actually see what you've drawn, any softer than 3B is really going to smudge at the very slightest touch--that's about what I would expect from any newsprint at any price.
