Ich liebe (Bücher-)Listen und die TV-Serie Gilmore Girls. Meine Lieblingsfigur war natürlich Rory: intelligent, zielstrebig, ein Bücherwurm.

Nun bin ich erst Jahre nach Ende der Show über eine Liste gestolpert (drauf gekommen bin ich über Sueys Blogpost), naja, was sag ich, über mehrere Listen gestolpert mit Büchern, die Rory im Laufe der Seire liest/erwähnt/gelesen haben soll/in einem Buchclub durchgenommen hat. Die Anzahl der Bücher auf der Liste variiert zwischen 120 und 350 Titeln. Hier möchte ich dir ursprüngliche Liste vorstellen, wie sie damals der Fernsehsender WB, auf dem Gilmore Girls im Original lief, veröffentlicht hatte.

Aktueller Stand: 11/120

Und erschüttert stelle ich fest, dass ich nur elf bisher gelesehen habe, vom Großteil der Bücher noch nie etwas gehört habe und eigentlich bei ein paar gar nicht zugeben dürfte, dass ich sie noch nicht (ganz) gelesen habe *ähem* Aber solche Listen sind ja immer subjektiv und und für mich eher Ansporn, die Nase literarisch gelegntlich mal wieder über den Tellerrand hinauszustrecken.

Wer ebenso wie ich Lust bekommen hat sich mit einer guten Tasse Tee und einem hoffentlich ebenso guten Buch zu verkrümeln, kann das auch auf goodreads in einer passenden Gruppe tun, in der monatlich ein Buch, allerdings von einer erweiterten Liste, gelesen wird.

Alles Liebe,
