Just Finished : The Summer Of Us by Holly Chamberlain Genre: Chick Lit Grade : C- Hot Sell Tagline: Sex In The City meets Bridget Jones What I Liked About It: Light summer read. What I Didn't Like About It: Unsympathetic characters who are cruel to one another and the men in their life. Obligatory GLBT Score: 10 out of 10. Lesbian best friend in love with a main character.

Re-reading: Prizes by Erich Segal Genre: Novel Grade : B+ Hot Sell Tagline: Little Man Tate as re-written by the author of Love Story What I Like About It: Great characters and an interesting look at the various types of genius and the toll of being extraordinary. What I Didn't Like About It Last Time: Segal doesn't write intrigue very well. He would do best to stick with interpersonal interplay. Obligatory GLBT Score: 1 out of 10. Possible bi-sexual character whose ambiguity is never resolved.

Gnostic Gospels? That's very ambitious.

Did you ever see 'Stigmata' with that Patty Arquette and Gabe Byrne?

It's a very intriguing concept, but on the long list of "Catholicism is Evil" movies.
