En uge med bøger - og Rory Gilmore

Det bliver en uge med bøger her på bloggen. Om bøger jeg har læst for nyligt, om bøger jeg skal til at læse og om bøger på andre måder. 

For eksempel fandt jeg via pinterest Rory Gilmores læseliste. (Har du set Gilmore Girls? - så ved du, at Rory hvis ikke Rory har næsen i en bog, så har hun den under armen eller i sin taske.) Det er altid spændende med bog-lister, synes jeg. Det er som at gå ind og kigge på et andet menneskes bogreol - der er genkendelse og inspiration til nye eventyr. 

Jeg har kopieret Rory Gilmores læseliste ind nedenunder. De bøger jeg har læst er markeret med lilla. Jeg har ikke markeret dem, jeg kunne tænke mig at læse, men det var måske nok værd at gøre?

  1. Så nu starter du bare fra en ande af med resten? ;)

    Jeg har læst: (nogle af dem på dansk - så gælder det måske ikke?):
    Alice in Wonderland
    Anna Karenina
    The Da Vinci -Code
    The Fellowship of the Ring
    Harry Potter
    The Kite Runner
    The House of the Spirits
    Moby Dick
    The Name of the Rose
    The Shadow of the Wind (den skulle du læse, den er god!)
    Uncle Tom’s Cabin
    Wuthering Heights

    Desuden har jeg dem her stående på hylden, men har ikke åbnet dem endnu ;)
    The Count of Monte Cristo
    The Hunchback of Notre Dame

    Tak for inspirationen - jeg er nødt til at have en større bogreol! :)

    1. Ved ikke lige, hvad der er gået galt med linjeinddelingen?! Kan ikke rette den hverken i HTML eller på "skriv"... Godt gået, du tydede det :-)

      Det tæller da også på dansk. Jeg har bestemt heller ikke læst alt på engelsk - jeg er jo dansker! Og ja, en bogreol skal altid kunne udvides :-D

    2. This comment has been removed by the author.

    3. hehe - jeg opgav nu også hurtigt at tyde den her, men brugte den, du linker til :-D

  2. Hold da op det er godt nok maaaaange bøger!!! Tror jeg opgi´r at fnde hoved og hale i det.
    Meeen jeg har dog læst en del bøger gennem årene. Det har desværre været lidt sløjt med det de senere år. Jeg håber det kommer igen.
    God læselyst;-)

  3. Sikke en liste! "How Americans Became the Fattest in the World" - måske ikke lige den næste jeg skal læse. Men ellers en del gode.. Har været i gang med 1Q84 af Haruki Murakami bog 1&2, nu mangler jeg kun 3'eren. God, men meget meget mærkelig.
    Jeg kommer ikke lige forbi din blog hver dag, men da jeg nu gjorde ville jeg lige sige hej - det ser ud til at du/I har det godt:-)

  5. Spændende liste, men håbløs i sine grove overrepræsentation af amerikansk litteratur.
    Ole Birch

    1. Helt klart. Jeg mangler også en del andre. Og selvfølgelig også danske. Men sådan er det vel altid med den slags lister, at der vil mangle nogen alt efter hvilken indgangsvinkel til litteraturen man har?


Jeg bliver rigtig glad, når der er kommentarer til mine indlæg. Så læg endelig en hilsen, når du har været forbi. Har du ikke lyst til at skrive, så alle kan se det, kan du skrive til mig på annetkthompson (a) gmail.com Fortsat god dag!
