Aktion // The Rory Gilmore Book List

Eine weitere unendliche(!!!) Aktion. Nach einem Gilmore Girls Marathon erinnerte ich mich daran, schon einmal eine Liste der Bücher im Netz gefunden zu haben, die Rory Gilmore, der Bücherwurm aller Bücherwürmer, in 7 Staffeln Gilmore Girls gelesen hat. Also machte ich mich von neuem auf die suche, und wurde schnell belohnt. Es ist eine lange, lange, lange Liste mit vielen Büchern die mich interessieren, und noch mehr Büchern, die es nicht tun. Ich werde sie nie ganz abarbeiten, das weiß ich selbst und jegliches Vorhaben dies zu tun wäre utopisch. Aber dennoch, sie soll mir als Kaufinspiration dienen.

  1. Die Idee ist ja originell. Gefällt mir. ;)
    Viel Erfolg damit.

  2. Hi Suey,

    bin gerade durch Zufall auf deinen Blog gestoßen und bin total begeistert von der "Rory Gilmore Book List" :-)
    Ich liebe diese Serie und habe sie rauf und runter gesehen ^^
    Ich war immer begeistert von den Büchern die sie gelesen hat und wollte schon immer ein paar davon lesen und jetzt finde ich hier diese tolle Liste, ich werde mir mal ein paar raussuchen!
    Eine Tolle Aktion und viel Erfolg dabei :-)

    Liebe Grüße Lea

    1. Wie du siehst, hab ich die Liste 2012 veröffentlicht und bin inzwischen nicht wirklich weit gekommen mit gelesenen Büchern. Manche sind auch wirklich was speziell, von anderen kenn ich dank Filmen etc. schon in etwa die Handlung, weswegen ich sie jetzt nicht dringend lesen muss. Aber irgendwann, irgendwann!!! würde ich schon gerne mal irgendwie alle gelesen haben. Ich hoffe die Liste inspiriert dich genauso wie mich :)
      Liebe Grüße
