Found on Pinterest #10

And now for something completely different, I've been debating what to do today and I couldn't decide!!! Is it too soon for a summer wish list? Probably.  Do you want to see more of my imaginary house plans? I didn't think so.

So, instead, I've gone with a 'reblog' (I think it's called) of Rory Gilmore's Reading list.

Someone, at some point took, the time to put together a list of all the books that we know Rory to have read over the 7 series of The Gilmore Girls, I guess it included any book references, that she's seen reading, or seen on the set at some point.

Anyway, here it is, click on the photo for the original blog, I've edited it down just to books I actually want to read and I've gone through the list and have marked any that I've read in red, but I'll tell you now it is pitifully few.
