Have you heard of the Rory Gilmore Reading List? It’s an exhaustive list of every single book ever mentioned on Gilmore Girls, and it’s something like 300+ books long. You can find the complete Rory Gilmore Reading List here, and check off the ones you have or haven’t read! I’ve personally only read 74 of the 339 books (22%) so I had better get reading!
Seriously, Gilmore Girls ended seven years ago and it’s still my favorite show. I’d like to pretend I don’t plan my mornings around ABC Family reruns of it, but I’m not a liar. I’d also like to pretend I didn’t wear out my first set of DVDs and have to buy another but you get the point. The show never gets old. The writing is pithy and intelligent, the characters are well-written and complex, and I think I learned half of what I know about obscure pop culture references from watching it. But the best part of the show, in my opinion (besides Jess Mariano), is the emphasis on good literature.
