Bronte Hello! Great list - good thinking. I've been following it as I watch the series.

One thing I noticed ...

A boy in Mr O'Neill's class was reading The Bell Jar in episode 'The F Word'. After seeing the book, and a girl drawing a coffin, and Brittany crying, Jane and Daria make a few comments about the class being down. A little oblique perhaps, but anyway, up to you! Watch the scene to get what I mean. :)

Yes, I definitely recall that scene, so I added The Bell Jar to the list. Thanks!

ayanami I spotted Rule of the Bone (at least, I'm pretty sure that's what it said) in season 2, episode 11 "See Jane Run".

Also, they discuss The Prince and the Pauper in Mr. O'Neill's class in "Through a Lens Darkly".

Natalien Awesome list, good for you to put together!

Nivy S I made a good reads account just to add this book:
How to Win Friends and Influence People
Jodie reads it in "Gifted".


message 23: by philip (new)

philip In season two episode seven , the new kid, Daria's quasi-love interest Ted Dewitt-Clinton talks about Orpheus in the Underworld by Ovid and mentions a medieval manuscript on swordplay from the 11th-century. No historical manuscript on swordplay dates from that period . The earliest one is Fechtbücher Royal Armouries Ms. I.33, "The tower manuscript" its from 13th Century. it's my belief that this is the one to which Ted refers to during the arcade.


message 24: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Berman In "Boxing Daria," she is reading Black Beauty in a flashback.


message 25: by Paula (new)

Paula Mckinley In "The Misery Chick" Mr. O'Neill's class is reading 'In Memoriam' by Alfred Tennyson

message 27: by Doug (new)

Doug Haynes How is Henery and Glenn Forever on the list when it was not published until after the show as off the air?


message 28: by amanda (new)

amanda may I don't understand why "Henry and Glenn Forever" is on here either. It was published in 2010! "Going After Cacciato" is on the blackboard in the episode "Fair Enough" along with "War and Peace" and "Catch-22," so I'm assuming she would have read it (but then, so is the joke title "The Happy Hollisters Visit a Minefield.")


message 29: by Sebastian (last edited May 06, 2016 10:16PM) (new)

Sebastian Mallory Quinn was reading "thrombocytopenia complications after stent placement coronary artery and angioplasty" in one episode, not sure if it's an actual book though!

Das Kapital was also read by Daria's dad in Sappy Anniversary
