Rory Gilmore Challenge, Season 2

Gilmore Girls Season 2

Below are the books mentioned in season 2, as collated by Amanda here. The effort she has put in is amazing, with notes telling you the exact reference and episode.

I will highlight any I have read in green. Any that are crossed out I do not intend on reading, either because it is a topic I have no interest in (Cookery, etc.), a biography of someone I have no interest in or it is going to be a struggle for me to read, or just something I will not enjoy.
