Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge

“I live in two worlds.  One is a world of books.” – Rory Gilmore

Recently I heard about the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge which apparently has been a thing for years and I’ve been living under a rock. Gilmore Girls is coming back to Netflix this month, and I thought a good way to pay respects to it would be to try to read every book Rory mentions in the show. I’ve also really been wanting to start getting into reading again, because it’s been far too long and I thought this challenge would be a good way to do it.

I have no real set end date for this challenge, I just want to read as many books on this list as I can. As I complete the book it’ll have a strike-through and a date, books I have already read before are already marked through (but I may reread some of them). If you want to participate in this challenge as well, please let me know.
