If you've ever seen Gilmore Girls, there's a pretty good chance you know that Rory Gilmore is as big a bookworm as they come—maybe that's why she's so likeable. Recently, we stumbled on this exhaustive list of all the books Rory has read, and after we caught our breath (there's some 250 books on there!) we decided to compile a few more of the books we've noticed some of our favorite fictional characters reading—so as to follow along, of course. Below, see what books Don Draper, Margot Tenenbaum, and Daria Morgendorffer have been occupying themselves with recently.
