    Stars Hollow. The basis and the heart of the Gilmore Girls. The tiny town where Rory grew up; where everyone fell in love and out of love (hi, Jess); where mishaps happened (remember that time Taylor installed a camera to catch speeding cars and Kirk instead ran his car through Luke's Diner?) and so many television memories were made. Stars Hollow is the cozy, quirky town we all want to visit with a never-ending cup of coffee and a stack of Rory-approved books. While my favorite character on the show happens to be Michel (sarcasm after my own heart), I think many of us out there would choose Stars Hollow as our favorite character because, if there was ever a town with such well-loved and well-lived-in character, it’s Stars Hollow.

    Rory Gilmore is one of THE beloved Gilmore Girls.  Everyone cares for Rory… I don’t mean care, care, like care.  I mean everyone likes her… not like like.  I just mean that if… if you think of her remotely as the sort of person that you could occasionally stand to talk to... oh, never mind!  Rory is the major reader of the show, so I probably had the easiest blog post to write!  She even mentions it in her valedictorian speech at Chilton, “I live in two worlds.  One is a world of books.”  Without further ado, a short reading list for THE Lorelai Leigh ‘Rory’ Gilmore.
