Rory Gilmore Okuma Challenge’ı

Yıllardır (evet, gerçekten yıllardır) Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge’ı görüyorum sağda solda. Pek çok insan Gilmore Girls‘ün ana karakterlerinden, çalışkanlığı ve sürekli kitap okumasıyla bilinen Rory Gilmore’un dizi boyunca okuduğu kitapları okuyor. Hep ben de yapmak istiyordum ama üşeniyordum. Bu yılın dolu dolu geçecek olmasının heyecanıyla buna da bir el atayım dedim…
Bu, bir yılda bitirebileceğim bir şey değil haliyle. “Ne kadarını okusam kardır” kafasıyla başladığım bir challenge. It’s Time To Read isimli blogdan aldığım listeyi aşağıda paylaşıyorum. Yanlış saymadıysam 339 adet kitap var. Şimdilik Türkçe isimlerini teker teker bulup yazmaya üşendim; zamanla gelecekler. Okuyup yorumladıkça linkler de eklenecek tabii ki.

Altı çizilenler: Okuduklarım
Diğerleri: Henüz okumadıklarım
Bu arada şunu da belirtmem lazım; aşağıdaki bazı kitapları eminim elime bile almayacağım. Ancak liste tam olsun diye çıkarmadım hiçbirini.
