De Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge

De serie Gilmore Girls blijft toch wel een favoriet van ons. Met name het personage Rory Gilmore vinden wij geweldig in de serie. Dit komt mede doordat ze net zo'n boekenwurm is als ons! In de serie leest Rory maar liefst 339 boeken. Er bestaat nu zoiets als de Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge, een challenge waarbij men probeert om alle boeken die Rory Gilmore in de serie gelezen heeft zelf ook te lezen.

 

Welke boeken moet je lezen voor de Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge?

De Australische schrijver Patrick Lenton heeft een lijst samengesteld waarin alle boeken staan die Rory Gilmore gelezen of benoemd heeft in de serie Gilmore Girls. Hij heeft zich voorgenomen om alle boeken die op deze lijst staan te lezen. 

Wij hebben voor jullie de lijst met boeken hieronder opgesteld, zodat ook jij je kunt wagen aan de Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge. Veel leesplezier!
