      It's hot out, and time for trashy summer reading. I picked up the Twilight books a couple weeks ago and couldn't put them down. As many have pointed out, they're unbelievably sexist (as my girlfriend put it, "They're vampires; they can do anything, and heterosexual monogamy is their big dream?!") but it turns out they're also a cultural touchstone. Since I started reading them, quite a few artists and curators (all female, mid-twenties to thirties) have admitted to reading the books with relish, too. While it may lack the epic intensity of werewolf versus vampire, I hope you find some tasty treats of your own in this week's ...might be good.

      Claire Ruud is Editor of ...might be good and Associate Coordinator of testsite.
