Ying I was hoping someone had this list. Thanks!
But, I feel I should also say, Rory probably meant the kids novel the Bambi Disney movie is based on.

I had been wondering about that, when I came across the title... I think you're probably right.


Kelly 💜☕️ Might want to change the edition on "Howl" since the one on this list is a graphic novel and gets varied reviews.

This one is classic:

Vishnu Brahmandam I've got to complete this list someday!


message 5: by Claire (last edited Feb 02, 2016 05:34PM) (new)

Claire Added Being There and The Witches of Eastwick :) I'm re-watching Gilmore Girls and there are a few books/movies-based-on-books that aren't on the list that is around the internet.


message 6: by GraefinZahl (new)

GraefinZahl I would prefer another version of the book "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" since the one listed has only an english edition.
I think, this one is a better choice:

Does anyone know which Bambi is the correct one? There are currently two books on the list.

Also, what's the final number of books supposed to be? Currently I see 354 books on here. I wonder if someone has added incorrect works, as elsewhere I've seen mentioned a few dozen fewer volumes for the challenge.


message 10: by [deleted user] (new)

I am really excited to start reading all of them! Except of Harry Potter, which I've read several times in my life, I'm going to read again the ones that might be in my 'read' list, just to organize or to remember the story.
But I have so many books in my 'to read' list, that I actually have no idea of how much time this will take.
Wish me luck! And the same for you guys :)


message 11: by Julie (new)

Julie Dr Jeckyll is on here twice, 61 and 85.


message 12: by Jamie (new)

Jamie I was just watching the episode that Rory makes Jess read the Fountainhead and that's not on here.

I noticed that too, when it was listed as 72 and 84 and it's now 75 & 81. Seems something funky is going on with Jekyll and Hyde. (Go figure....)


message 15: by Nadya (new)

Nadya I read many of these in high school but I wanna start fresh and read them all! So excited.


message 16: by Cat (new)

Cat I just started watching Gilmore Girls, (I know, shame on me) and I was wondering if somebody had compiled a list of the books mentioned or read in the series. I'm glad I found this list!

There are several Listopia's dedicated to the books mentioned in the Gilmore Girls.


message 18: by Aleksandra (new)

Aleksandra Do you maybe have it in a PDF format? I would love to make a list where I could check the books with a pen. It would be great!

I finished Gilmore Girls this summer and I felt so heartbroken I started watching it again...

I never looked for it, but there might be one available. After all, the info had to be gotten from somewhere :-) Just google the net, I'd say, who knows what you'll find.

Additional info:
I did a quick search and found plenty... This one might be what you're looking for.


message 20: by Aleksandra (new)

Aleksandra Yes, I've seen it already, but I think it's not complete. Anyway, I think it will do :) thank you for the answer.


message 21: by Dani (new)

Dani is there anyway i can make this list as one of my own?


message 22: by Lena (new)

Lena Dani wrote: "is there anyway i can make this list as one of my own?"
I just created a new shelf and tagged each book with "want to read" and "RGilmore booklist"
It took a while to get through it all but that's how I did it. I hope it took it all.

And on an unrelated note, these are all the books MENTIONED in the show. Not just Rory's books that she read on the show. I think I was looking more for that one. Oh well.

O crap, and the new episode(s) are there NEW BOOKS??

I found the this additional information for the new season. I have not proofread the list yet, as there are spoilers included.

katie Dr Jeckyll and Mr Hyde is still duplicated on here, it's listed twice. Can a librarian remove one of them? Thank you!

#79 The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is combined with only six other books. I thought I'd combine it with the many, many other editions (for instance with #86 The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde) but I can't seem to find the first one (#79) and I don't want to remove it by hand as the votes will then get lost (which won't happen if I combine the books first and then use the duplicate check).

Addition:
Found it (finally)... For #79 (The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde) however there is a note by another librarian (Ghalia) saying "This is an adaptation for children, please do not combine with the original novel", so there is not much I can do about there being two editions in this list Sorry...

If you "like" the list you can find it easier.

I wonder if anyone has finished it. I'm almost done with the first page. LOL. Some on the other pages I've read too, but not even close to finishing. I wish the site counted all the pages and told you how many book you have read on the list already, and not only the first page. It's a bit annoying.


message 29: by Emily (new)

Emily How do you like this list?


message 30: by Stephanie (new)

Stephanie Johnson Emily wrote: "How do you like this list?"

At the end of the list before the comments section there is a grey button on the left side that says "like" once you click it changes to "unlike." Then you can find the list by changing it to "lists I've liked."


message 31: by Leah (new)

Leah Markum I saw "Yoga For Dummies" on the list and it took me maybe 2 seconds to remember that yes, indeed, it was on the show, lol. Kirk read it on stage at Miss Patty's anniversary with show business. I wish the rest of these imprinted on me so well. It'd make a fun trivia to know which scenes in the show refer to which books.

Yep! I just re-saw that episode. It's her 40th anniversary of the business we call "SHOW." :)
