If you haven't seen the television show "Gilmore Girls" you are missing on out on some fast talking, diner food eating, book reading goodness. This blog is about celebrating the book reading aspect, but you might also find additional references to "Gilmore Girls" or reading in general throughout. Some awesome soul compiled a list of 349 books read or featured on "Gilmore Girls", and this blog is my attempt to read all of them in two years. Join me for the good, the bad, the oh-my-gosh-i-don't-wanna-read-that, and more. For every book I complete, I will be donating books to children.

Gilmore Girls ~ Season 1, Episode 2 and the reading list

Season 1, Episode 2 of the Gilmore Girls, called "The Lorelais' First Day at Chilton," doesn't show Rory actually reading any of the books on the Rory Gilmore reading list, but several books are mentioned throughout the show, as well as several writers. Episode 2 revolves around Rory's first day at Chilton, a snooty private school where academic competition is beyond fierce.

The characters are becoming slightly more refined compared to the first episode, but Sooki is still a bit too crazy in episode two - I'm so glad they toned her down a bit as the series went on while still retaining some of her kookiness.

I also am amazed by how little Liza Weil, the actress who played Paris Geller, has aged! She seems to have a knack for playing uptight characters and currently is in the show "How to Get Away with Murder." Other than updated makeup, hair, and clothes, she looks practically the same! Her features are a little more chiseled (she is looking quite thin...), but without the makeup and mature outfits, I'm sure she'd still look like a teenager.

Anyhow, on to the books... As mentioned, Rory isn't actually shown reading any books during the episode, although she does carry around a lot of textbooks and many books do get mentioned. Those that are mentioned are:
