Literary Listography

I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that I'm not the only blogger in the world who loves a good book and a good list. Shocking, right? Well, I hope I'm not the only one as I'm talking about the Literary Listography book. I've tried many of list-eqsue books in the past, such as the 'One Line A Day for Five Years' book, and those 'Three Lines A Day' journal things. I'm pretty sure you know what I mean, maybe you have one too? 

Literary Listography is a little bit different. As instead of asking you to come up with your own stuff - which isn't very good when you're like me and limited on your creativity - but it offers you prompts instead. Favourite autobiography? Favourite quotes? Character you wouldn't save from a rabid dog? I may have made one of those up. I feel like this book is essentially an extension of my goodreads account. Once I check a book off as read, I'll flick through my LL book and see if it fits in somewhere. 

Above all, I think the Literary Listography book is just stunning. The illustrations are dreamy, and I love how they look. I'd love to know the thought process behind what illustrations to create. Below are the illustrations for The Road - Cormac McCarthy and Wild - Cheryl Strayed, which I think are really simple, but beautifully done.

Would you buy Literary Listography? Or is it one list too many?
