Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday: The Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge (Genre Freebie)

rory-gilmore-reading

Now that many of us are self-isolating we have a lot more time on our hands. We’re going to be needing some low key pastimes since parties, vacations, and other peopley events have been cancelled until further notice. I imagine the more bookish of us are hoping to use this time to read the books we’ve always meant to.

When several countries and regions were preparing for lockdown I read a few articles about bookstores seeing an increase in sales, especially when it came to series and chunksters. And that brings us to this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! I’ve taken some liberties with the freebie and instead of focusing on a genre, I’m going to be covering The Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge.

Fans of The Gilmore Girls know that Rory always had a book in her hand. Sometimes more than one! Over the course of the series we saw her with dozens upon dozens of books and a super-fan out there has compiled a list of all of 339 them.

Many fellow bookworms in the online book groups I’m in often mention how they’re attempting to finish the entire list and I seriously wish them luck. I’ve only managed 80 out of 339, but maybe I can try to squeeze a few more in during this lockdown! Here are 10 that I really want to read.

    1. Yeah to be honest I’ll never finish the list for the same reason. There are so many books on there I have no real interest in reading, but I would like to at least get a few more on that list read.
