Diese Challenge basiert auf all den Büchern, die man Rory aus der Fernsehserie Gilmore Girls lesen sieht. Da ich mittlerweile auch mein Herz an diese Serie verloren habe, möchte ich mich natürlich auch an diese Herausforderung machen! 🙂

Die Liste habe ich hierher (das war eines der ersten Ergebnisse auf Google :D), alles, was mir sofort als Reiseführer erkenntlich war, habe ich rausgestrichen! Nach dem ersten Abschreiben fällt mir vor allem auf, dass hier mehr Bücher von Stephen King drauf sind, als ich je zu lesen vorhatte, aber wenn ich mal wieder in morbider Stimmung bin … 😉
