Hi, I'm Fran. I live in the United States. East Coast (I don't like getting too specific online!) I'm 23 years old. About a year ago I completed my BA in English Literature and Creative Writing, and now I'm laboring in a dreary entry level job in publishing. The only good parts are that I can make contacts and hopefully someday get some of my work published. Plus I occasionally get free book!! I wrote a "novel" for my senior project which Neh is in the process of reading, and now I'm working on editing and expanding that, as well as some short stories.
Aside from books, do I have a life? Erm, not really! I love theater, musicals, opera, film, well, the arts generally!

I just got onto the Whole Rory Book Club thing. I have been watching GG every week since the very beginning and am always the first to buy it on DVD as soon as it comes out!!! I'm from Ontario Canada. I am still only in High School for my Fifth Year Grade 13, I am a book-a-holic but I am going into Medical Biophysics instead of Eng or lit. I love reading but i don't like writing essays about what I read!!! Currently Like millions of other people out there my favorite book is THe Catcher in the Rye but i think my favorite author would have to be Margrate Atwood ( A Handmaids Tale is definitely in my top 10) I'm glad to have found a great looking place to read and talk about books especially the ones that "Rory" has read!

First off I like to say thankyou for bringing back Rory's book club. I've missed it. It always introduced such good books. Now let 's see I'm 34 and a mother of two teenage boys. I love love to read and I enjoy discussing the books I've read with people and have them suggest new ones. I live in a small town in western Nebraska, not alot of book clubs around here.

Hi Everyone! I'm SO excited to find this! I really miss Rory's Book Club! I tried to write to the CW and request it, and my email got bounced back...the address they provided for comments didn't even work...
Anyway, I'm Emily, I'm 22. I recently moved to New York City from Michigan. I read constantly, am a coffee addict, and I also love movies, magazines, and traveling.
I love reading great fiction, memiors, and classics. My favorite authors are F. Scott Fitzgerald, Augusten Burroughs, Kurt Vonnegut, and Bill Bryson.
My favorite books that I've read recently are: The Thirteenth Tale, Life of Pi, and Cat's Cradle.
I'm really looking forward to being part of this group, everyone seems great!
hi zelda! Glad you found us. I did the same thing at cw with the email bouncing back. i've got a couple of posts going there about this club and I'm hoping to reach as many old members as possible so it's great you're here! Welcome to the club!

Hi, my name's Jen and I didn't belong to the old board, but I belong to a message board similar to this and I love the dynamics, so I thought I'd expand my literary horizons. I have a degree in English and Communications and I'm currently working as a reporter in Massachusetts. I spend the majority of my free time reading anything really: classics, contemporary fiction, poetry, etc.

Hi, I found this forum a week ago and I have been lurking around and reading old posts and found it really interesting. So, here I am! I live in Australia so we don't get the up-to-date Gilmore Girls on TV. I have ordered Season 6 and am eagerly awaiting its arrival. I have a Masters degree in Literature and Creative Writing - reading and writing have always been my BIG passions in life. I love Katharine Kerr, Jeanette Winterson, Jane Austen, Isaac Bashevis Singer, the list could go on forever!!! Now, I just have to work out what to do on here next...
