A few months ago I found myself with a gift card to Barnes and Noble and not a clue what to do with it. Don’t get me wrong, I love reading and I especially love buying books just for the sake of buying books, but I prefer to purchase them used. Not only are they waaay cheaper, but they have more character and a great old book-ey smell too. Anyway, so I wandered around B&N for a little while, trying to figure out what to spend this gift card on when I finally stumbled across this book in the journal section called Listography. This book simply consists of subjects for lists (places you’d like to visit, best gifts you’ve ever received, personal fashion trends over the years, etc) and several lines on which to complete your list as well as funny little illustrations. For me, list-making falls under the category of inexplicable but intense pleasures — so of course I bought the book.
To my added joy, there is also a website where you can sign up and makes even MORE lists on whatever subject strikes your fancy. Since I’ve been spending the majority of the last couple days in bed with a box of kleenex and some DayQuil, I’ve spent a lot of my time either listing or watching movies on netflix. I think my listography is coming along quite nicely so far.
