The WB is sponsoring a Boston-based Gilmore Girls fan and has challenged them to read all the books Rory Gilmore read on the show! She is Twittering her experience at the account Rorysreqreading.
The fan is using the well-known Rory’s Book Club, a site that is also centered on reading all the books Rory read on the show. They’ve compiled a whole list of books seen or mentioned. It’s a huge, varied list, which is so impressive, considering most shows don’t drop in so many literary references or have teenage girls who are as addicted to reading as Rory is.
It seems that reading all of Rory’s books is a really popular project amongst Gilmore Girls fans, a search on YouTube reveals a few video reviews of other fans who are also attempting to tackle the massive reading list.
Have you read as many books as Rory? How many of the books mentioned on the show have you read? I’ve read a lot of books and I think I’ve only read a handful!
