Those in the oil well drilling business use tally books continually every day. They
keep a close record of when they attach a new section of pipe, and how long it is, and what time it is. The books are just the right size to fit into a pocket, so the books are kept right where they are needed. So tally books are a necessity in the oil drilling business.

As you know, vinyl is ubiquitous, and very inexpensive. However, it looks expensive, similar to leather.
