Jennifer Hi Amanda,
In episode 9 of season five, Like Water For Chocolate is able to be seen on Rory's bookshelf when she's talking on the phone (it is next to A Girl from Yamhill by Beverly Cleary). It is this edition and translation, the same text that Kirk haggles over in episode 15 of season two.

Awesome, thank you! I've since acquired that edition, but didn't have it when I was making the list :)


message 3: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer No worries! Definitely some of them you can only make out when you have familiarity with the particular edition; there's just no making out that blurry text otherwise!
