Rory's Book Club

I thought I'd take some time to put in a shameless plug for an amazing place on the internet. I'm surprised I haven't mentioned it more in this blog!

Rory's book club ( shares two out of four things I am quite passionate about: reading and Gilmore Girls!

If you aren't familiar with the show, it is about a woman (Lorelai) who came from a rich, well-bred family and got pregnant at 16. The show takes place after the daughter (Rory) begins her sophomore year of high school. The girls live in a small town with tons of character and charm. Rory gets accepted into a private school, but single mom Lorelai can't afford it, which causes her to ask her parents. This show is so funny and full of wit, family problems, relationship problems, and of course, books. Rory is a book maniac. In each episode there are several books mentioned along with other pop culture references, which makes it worthy of a book club!

It's a smaller book forum with people from countries around the world. Many members speak several languages and some don't read their books mostly in English. There is also a subforum for Jane Austen book discussions as well. I'm not too crazy about her though.

Check it out! The least it can do is give you some more suggestions for your reading adventures!

I'm a big GG fan, too. I don't know what it is about that show, but I can watch it over and over and over again.

Thanks for stopping by the Book Nook! I understand what you mean about online safety...that's why I use a special email just for blog stuff that doesn't contain my last name.
