Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge

I like this Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge idea some friend posted to Facebook. (Sorry I can't remember who!) I like this list because it's quirky and somewhat less dude-centric than a lot of you-should-have-read-these-100-books-to-be-worthy types of lists. It is pretty white, though. The person I snagged the list from, snagged it from The Book Club Forum. I fixed a few obvious typos. I wish whoever compiled the list included only things that were actually read, preferably by Rory, not stuff like random movies titles or characters Lorelei blurts out.

The ones I haven't read are in bold, and I've added commentary to a few.
