And now, thanks to a video collaboration with First Lady Michelle Obama, Gilmore Girls fans know for sure that Rory (Alexis Bledel) is *STILL* as a huge book lover.

In the video, FLOTUS talks about her Let Girls Learn initiative, which aims to bring education to girls around the globe.

And Rory has just a few book suggestions for the First Lady to take with her on her travels.

"I know you're going to need a great book to read on the plane, so I thought I'd bring a few choices. I didn't know what mood you'd be in, so I brought all of Shakespeare, 'cause you can't go wrong with the Bard. And I've got...Marilynne Robinson, some Graham Greene, Zadie Smith, a little Proust, Sophie's Choice — it doesn't matter if you've seen the movie. Jane Austen — I mean, come on, Jane Austen — and then there's Moby Dick, Anna Karenina, The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, you know, some classic beach reads."

This is literally too good to be true.

Good to know after all these years, Rory hasn't forgotten her true passion.
