Hot & Heavy: Fifty Shades of Grey

Fifty Shades of Grey sure is stirring up trouble.  It's lighting up all the social media platforms, that's for damn sure.  I'm seeing a lot of my girlfriends' status updates mentioning that they're either in the middle of it or just finished it.  Every other tweet on Twitter seems to mention this infamous book by E.L. James.  So I told the girls in the office that they should read it.  Lord knows I don't read enough, so I thought I'd recommend a book based on my social networking.  I mentioned the book on Thursday morning.  

Saturday morning, at just about noon, my phone was lighting up about the "recommendation."  Oops.  I guess it's pretty hot.  I guess it's pretty intense, if you know what I mean.  Yes, it's like the P word.  Not so sure how soft, either.  Some women are admittedly reading from cover to cover, while some are reading on their e-readers, taking every precaution not to let anyone know they'd EVER pick up such a novel.

Yup, I'm intrigued.  No silly vampires, no Katniss, but it is a trilogy.  Chris says, "Are you really going to download that women's erotica? Maybe I should get some grey ties if that's what you like."

Hold on to your knickers, I think so.  I'm not going to put in on hold at the Boyden Library, but I just might download.  What are you going to do?

Read book 1 and now moving on to Book 2. Not well written, but the "story" is intense. Makes me blush just writing about it!

Ah yes, I also heard it was not well written. But does it matter? LOL.

For a minute I thought you were referring to a different "P" word - then even on my second guess I was on the wrong word! All the chatter about this book has my mind in the gutter??? lol.

Come on now, you're not putting it on hold at Boyden because you know the wait list is 100+. You need your "P" quicker than that.

I;ve been on a 300+ person waitlist for over 3 months now... I might just bite the bullet, pay $10 and download it. :/ Any book that has caused this much conversation is worth reading!
