I don’t have any news about the much-anticipated Gilmore Girls reboot, because I just started with season 1, episode 1 earlier this month. I had barely heard of the show before the outpouring of excitement for last Friday’s release. But I’m glad I’m giving it a try, because the show is both nonconformist and cozy, with the quick-witted sass of the characters offsetting the way each episode wraps up with someone doing the right thing.
Rory – the daughter in the show – is an admirable reader, and a list has been compiled of every book she reads or someone references in the TV show. See how you rank against Rory or, if you get totally bewildered by something Lorelai says, the show’s cultural references are all annotated here. Then, come in to the library and look for our Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge display!
(Now, I’m off to the CD section to find something to dislodge the show’s theme song from my head. ♫ Where you lead… ♫)
