Rory Gilmore read a helluva lot of books - so how many have you read?

That’s a very good Buzzfeed list!

I love the fact that even though I only read about 30 of those books, I have several of them waiting on my shelves. I wish we had an official and updated version from the CW or Amy Sherman-Palladino, because I’m sure she would’ve read a thousand books by now. And, of course, Jesse’s book is missing.

Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen

For more stories of troubled teenagers and big questions, try these…

The Moth Diaries by Rachel Klein for a disconcerting story where it’s never clear what is real and what is in our protagonist’s mind

The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides for a claustrophobic tale of urban discontent

Where The Moon Isn’t by Nathan Filer for a moving, prize-winning story of schizophrenia and mental institutions (AKA The Shock Of The Fall)

Loud in the House of Myself by Stacy Pershall for a memoir of a girl suffering with borderline personality disorder

“Your library is your portrait.”

“We are what we love to read, and when we admit to loving a book, we admit that the book represents some aspect of ourselves truly, whether it is that we are suckers for romance or pining for adventure or secretly fascinated by crime.”
Nina Sankovitch, Tolstoy and the Purple Chair: My Year of Magical Reading (via bibliophilebunny)
“Some say they get lost in books, but I find myself, again and again, in the pages of a good book. Humanly speaking, there is no greater teacher, no greater therapist, no greater healer of the soul, than a well-stocked library.”
L.R. Knost  (via paperlover)

“¡Libros! ¡Libros! Palabra mágica que equivale a decir: “amor, amor”, y que los pueblos debieran pedir como piden pan o anhelan la lluvia después de la siembra.”

Federico García Lorca (via poesianoerestu)

Books! Books! Magical word that means: “love, love”, and that people should ask for as they ask for bread, or as they long for rain after sowing.

"You know how people buy drinks for girls in bars? Why can’t people do that in book stores? Like if I’m looking at a novel in Barnes and Noble and some person walks up to me and strikes up a conversation and offers to buy the book for me there is a lot better chance of that working out in their favor"
