Fifty Shades of Grey

Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James

I’m a little hesitant to admit that I just finished the Fifty Shades trilogy.  But, I like reading what is popular and being up to date on the best sellers, regardless of the hype.  I’ve read all the Harry Potters, Twilights, and Hunger Games and I think reading a diverse array of literature and writing styles is important.

When I started Fifty Shades of Grey, I had very little knowledge of what it was about, except that it was blowing up the NEw York Times Bestseller list.  Since I would like to keep this blog PG rated and geared to kids, their parents, book lovers and educators it doesn’t feel right to get into too much graphic detail about the books (because quite frankly it is extremely graphic).   All in all,  if you want to try something new, don’t care about the level of writing, and are feeling frisky…this is the book for you.

In other Fifty Shades news…apparently the series is turning people onto reading again (sex pun), and putting money into the struggling publishing industry.  As indigo Canada vice president Bahram Olfati noted, “the book is really influencing what people a buying and what people are reading.  It is getting people excited.  The fact that people are so excited about any book and they’re coming in in droves just to buy this book and read it, just so they can talk about it, is fantastic for reading.”
