A while ago I discovered this wonderful list of books called the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge. Australian writer Patrick Lenton went through all seven seasons of Gilmore Girls and wrote down every book referenced in the series. The total comes out to 339 books.
(Note: This list does not include anything referenced in the recent Netflix addition to the Gilmore Girls series, although perhaps someone will take up Mr. Lenton's initiative and do it for us.)
At the time I discovered this list, I had been contemplating starting my own physical library after being inspired by Thomas Jefferson's collection in the Library of Congress, so what better way to start than by using the Rory Gilmore list as a guide for building my library?
There are only 2 rules I have for completing the challenge:
With these 2 rules in mind, here is the full list of 339. As I finish each one I will link it to a brief review. Follow me on Instagram (@ridinginfront) to see what I'm reading now and join me in my quest to complete the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge!
