    Gilmore Girls Reading Challenge

    Gilmore_girls_reading_challengeFrom Lisa, Gilmore Girls Reading Challenge

    Books played a big part in the television show "The Gilmore Girls." Rory was an avid reader. When Rory and Lorelai were going to Europe, Rory wanted to bring 12 books. Mind you, she was carrying everything in a backpack. Recently, a friend sent me a link to an episode-by-episode listing of all of the books seen, read, or mentioned in the series and the idea for a challenge was born. Of course, I didn't really have any idea how many books that actually was. Or how to set up a challenge. So I'm a little late getting this up and running. The good news is that there should be something in this for everyone. Rory and company read everything from Homer to Dan Brown and poetry to social commentary. The challenge will officially run from January 1, 2010 through December 31, 2010.

    There are three levels of participation:

    Emily: Read 5 books from at least two different categories.
    Lorelai: Read 10 books from at least three different categories.
    Rory: Read 20 books from at least four different categories.

    Voici ma sélection :

    1. Jane Austen - Northanger Abbey
    2. Emily Brontë - Wuthering Heights
    3. Charlotte Brontë - Jane Eyre
    4. Daphne Du Maurier - Rebecca
    5. Harper Lee - To Kill a Mockingbird
