Listography

I've always loved the idea of keeping a journal or diary. Having something to look back on in later life and see what you were doing and how much you have changed over the years has always appealed to me. However keeping a diary is something I stuggle to do, I'm sure everyone can relate with keeping a diary for a few days and then slowly losing interest. I think it's hard to keep a diary of day to day life because at the time it seems trivial and dull, you forget how interesting you'll find it in later life.

Recently I found a way to record your life without the pressure of keeping a diary everyday. I was browsing Waterstones when I stumbled across Lisa Nola's Listography books and fell in love. There's a book for every different aspect of your life from music to books to films to travel. Inside are gorgeous illustrations and questions on every page asking you to list things based on the subject of the book from your favourite characters to your favourite actors. What I love about the books is that they don't just ask the usual questions, but are full of funny and unique questions that you'e never thought of before but find you have a answer for. Some of my favourite questions were 'List love songs you'd want to be serenaded with', 'List advice that you follow from lyrics', 'List controversial books I've read', 'Historical periods I vicariously lived through', 'List your so-bad-it's-good movies', 'List film quotes you'll never forget.'




As you can see these Listography books are really fun ways to record what you love and hate about certain subjects. I love that you don't need to fill it all in as soon as you get it, just when you please. I've only just started filling them in but think they'll be a really fun way to look back at things that meant  a lot to me over the years!




Do you have any listography books? Have you tried keeping a diary before?
