The Vatican Weighs in on Book Reviews? WTF?

By Aishah Macgill

I was astonished to read that the Vatican newspaper reviews books and movies.

The Papal representatives were ‘less than impressed’ with JK Rowlings Casual Vacancy, her first foray into the world of adult fiction.

Since 2007, Pope Benedict XVI has encouraged the 151 year old Vatican newspaper, the L’Osservatore Romano, to embrace popular culture.

I wonder what you have to do to get your book reviewed by them? I’d love them to review my book!
