Desafío 2012: La lista de libros de Rory Gilmore

Me adhiero a la iniciativa de La lectora omnivora para dedicar este año a la lista de lectura de Rory Gilmore. Yo también fui una gran fanática de la serie Gilmore Girls y la he visto en todas sus repeticiones, así que este reto me parece de lo más simpático. 
«Para los que no conocen la serie, Rory es una adolescente hiper lectora, y en los diálogos entre madre e hija o con sus amigas o novios o lo que sea, siempre hay referencias a los libros que está leyendo o que leyó.
Aunque la actriz, Alexis Bledel, ha confesado que la mayor parte de las veces no tenía idea de qué era lo que estaba diciendo, (recitaba el guión), creo que la lista de lectura elaborada en base a las siete brillantes temporadas de la serie a ustedes sí que les resultará familiar y atractiva.
Lo bueno es que hay miles de clásicos y libros "obligatorios", asi que seguro que todos arrancamos el desafío con unos cuantos ya leídos».
