Rory Gilmore, Bookworm

I don’t know why the Gilmore Girls never caught on with me. I think they talk too fast for me. A recent article in Psychology Today suggests that introverts give other people’s words so much thought that we get bogged down when they keep on talking and don’t give us time to think (hence our aversion to chatterboxes). So much the worse when they machine gun a continuous stream of one-liners as the Gilmores do. However it seems there is a bookish element to the show, which I wasn’t aware of. Perhaps the show deserves another look.
