LISA NOLA is the creator of the LISTOGRAPHY JOURNAL SERIES (translated into 7 languages), The Listography Board Game, One List a Day journal, Date Night In, the new MINI Memoir journal, and the popular list-making website: With well over a million copies sold, and over 400,000 sign-ups, Lisa's mission is to inspire creative auto-biography and reflection through list-making.


Her JOURNALS provide people of all ages with a fun way to meditate on life: past, present, and future.

From the author:

"A few weeks before I lost my mother to cancer, I came upon her crying in her room. She said to me, “I am really going to miss eating a piece of toast.” This moment has remained with me as a gift. I regularly remind myself to appreciate everyday experiences and to revisit happy memories—which is hard to keep track of sometimes. And so, I make lists.

The JOURNALS help us reflect and preserve, cultivate our sense of gratitude, and ask us to be creative with our lives, which are ultimately our most important works of art.

What a mystery it is to all be here together on this planet. I hope you have a good life collecting the many wonderful elements of human experience––including a nice piece of toast!"
