I Love Lists

I’m currently working on another 100 Things I Love post, and it’s made me realize how much I enjoy making lists. I love creating lists, reading lists, and anything else in list form.

When I was going through my computer’s Favorites tab for links to include in my most recent tater tot post, I discovered that many of my links featured articles and blog posts were lists. So I thought it would be fun to create a blog post specifically for all of those links.

Here are some of my favorites.

List of lists of lists

Is anyone familiar with the Book of Lists? When I was a kid, I remember looking through my parents’ copy, and I just saw a reference to it in a book I was reading the other day.

  1. I could lose the whole day to this post. And the list of all the bookstores could turn me into a traveler (which I’m very much not!). These are very cool, and I’m looking forward to coming back to this post to explore further. I think I remember seeing (way, way back in the day when I cared about such things) that list posts are most likely to go viral/get shared. Maybe that’s why there are so many of them? Wonder if that’s still true?

    1. That makes me happy! Two of those bookstores are on my list of places to visit in the area. I wanted to stop by Myopic Bookstore today when I was in Chicago for an appointment, but I didn’t have time.

      I’d never heard that about list posts before, but I can see why!

  2. I enjoyed browsing your links. It was nice to see Cleveland and Columbus made the weekend getaway list, esp. since we just did that. I enjoy giving compliments to strangers, so glad to see that was at top of the generosity list. Why not make someone feel good about themself? I’ve used a lot of those Goodreads book lists to find new books.

    Have a wonderful week!

  3. This is fun. Oh, how I love lists. I live by my to do list, but I also like my list of things to pack when I go somewhere. Sometimes when my to do list gets too overwhelming, I will make tiny post-in note size lists to micromanage my lists. Will need to come back and visit some of these links. Tuesday is my busy babysitting day. ;0

  4. Now that you mention it I remember the Book of Lists, but couldn’t tell you what was in it. I like lists, often refer to myself as the Lady of the List, but rarely write a post that is a list. Once upon a time such posts were called *Listicles* and frowned upon. That I remember.

  5. I do love a list. Especially when I can check something OFF my list!
    Going to check out some of your list recommendations….on the top of my list are Organizing ideas from beachy vrbo’s (redoing our condo) and 49 things to do before you die. (I’m getting closer every day!)

    I don’t remember the People’s Almanac of Lists, but I’m intrigued.
