Eager reader of history, mystery, classics, biographies, steampunk, lit fic, science, scifi, and etc. My reviews are mostly positive--I rarely finish or write about books I don't enjoy. My TBR is too high for that.

All 339 Books Referenced In “Gilmore Girls”

Was anyone else a fan of the Gilmore Girls? My daughters and I watched every week, and within all that rapid fire dialogue there were a lot of references to books. This article lists all 339 of them according to Australian writer Patrick Lenton. Lenton is attempting to complete the "Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge" by reading each one himself--he's currently on #18, Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress. 





In her valedictorian speech Rory Gilmore said, “I live in two worlds, one is a world of books. I’ve been a resident of Faulkner’s Yoknapatawpha County, hunted the white whale aboard the Pequod, fought alongside Napoleon, sailed a raft with Huck and Jim, committed absurdities with Ignatius J. Reilly, rode a sad train with Anna Karenina and strolled down Swann’s Way. It’s a rewarding world."
