RORY: Thirteen million volumes? I’ve read like, what, three hundred books in my entire life and I’m already sixteen? Do you know how long it would take me to read thirteen million books?
LORELAI: But honey, you don’t have to read every one of them. Tuesdays with Morrie? Skip that. Who Moved My Cheese? Just stuff you already know.
Tuesdays with Morrie, a memoir by Mitch Alborn, previously discussed (apparently Lorelai read it and wasn’t impressed).
Who Moved My Cheese?: An Amazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life by Spencer Johnson is a motivational business fable first published in 1998. An immediate best-seller, it remained on the business bestseller list for five years, and spent 200 weeks on the non-fiction best-seller list. It remains one of the best-selling business books of all time. Lorelai’s appraisal of “just stuff you already know” is one of the milder criticisms the book has faced.
