Well, I could not resist all the hype surrounding this modern day bodice ripper-cum-page turner. Originally marketed as an e-book and print-on-demand in June 2011, 50 Shades of Grey is the creation of E.L. James, a British television producer who has apparently made herself wealthier than her entrepreneurial character Christian Grey.
50 Shades of Grey has caused quite a sensation. It hit number one on the New York Times' bestseller list at the beginning of March 2011. It has been suggested that the book's popularity may be because it can be downloaded to an e-reader, away from prying eyes. The book has also elicited some hilarious knee-jerk reactions from the usual suspects.
Here are a few headlines:

I personally LOVE this book!
It's quite addictive,entertaining, and sexy.
Exactly what you'd expect from a holiday read.
All the above reviews just make it that much more appealing to me.
Enjoy girls...and guys
