    Aside from thinking the term "mommy porn" is stupid and a derogatory pat on the head I'm wondering who decided that you had to spawn to enjoy erotic literature, regardless of how bloody awful the writing is. I also think it's ridiculous when we get articles claiming that Fifty Shades of Shite has made it 'acceptable' for women to enjoy some smut in their choice of reading material. Well thanks! I'm sure we're all grateful to E L James for giving us the go-ahead to do something that's been going on since, oooh, the first ever mildly saucy book came into being.

    Vintage; Warner Bros.
    Harry Potter's a wizard, but Christian Grey works a different kind of magic.
    In fact, E.L. James' Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy has outsold J.K. Rowling's seven-book Harry Potter series on Amazon U.K., per a report on The Verge.
    The first novel in the literotica series is actually dominating Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, outselling Rowling's original masterpiece by a factor of two to one. Oh, my!
    Check out the latest Fifty Shades of Grey casting rumors.
    But lest you think America has similarly moved on from the boy wizard to adult fiction, Fifty Shades is topping Amazon's U.S. bestseller chart in print and Kindle sales, but it's yet to break taboos records the way it has across the pond.
    And while we adore both franchises as much as the next S&M-loving muggle, we're really looking forward to Fifty Shades hitting the silver screen. Although no one's officially signed up for the Red Room of Pain just yet, rumors of either Matt Bomer, Chris Hemsworth or Ian Somerhalder playing Mr. Grey continue to persist.
    It's a struggle, but like Anastasia, we need to be patient. Laters, babes!

    thought i would share since it was on twitter
    There was an interview where they asked the cast of Snot (autocorrect that im keeping)White what they thought of FSofG. Some read excerpts. Hemsworth couldn't get through a full sentence before turning red and refusing to read more. Can't imagine him doing it.

    What would be much greater than a FSofG film would be a whole set of outtakes with the actors bursting into laughter while trying to deliver some of the lines, and ad-libbing silly stuff.

    Ok, I am late to the party, but I very rarely get to read anything for fun. So I borrowed the FSofG for the drive down the Florida. I've made it to the third book, but am SO relieved after reading this thread, because I came to most of these conclusions on my own, and was thinking, "what do my friends see in this?"

    I'm start to skim the sex parts because 1)who possibly has sex that much in 1 day? My personal record in 10 times in a Labor Day weekend (that was 20 years ago), but FFS, do these people have anything else to do? and 2) the dialogue is the SAME for every scenario: you are so beautiful/I can't live without you/blah blah.

    And, Christian Grey is a dick. Who wants someone to smother them like that? Puke. And, she's constantly worried he's always mad at her and walking on eggshells. FUCK THAT.

    I don't see how this is supposed to be a modern day love story.

    Exactly how I felt about it. At times it was actually difficult for me to read because Christian Grey reminded me so much of my ex...

    The S&M sequences are utterly ridiculous and unintentionally hilarious, but the way he talks to her in their everyday interactions, with a total lack of respect, and "patronizing contempt" (perfect description) is spot on, in terms of emotional abuse. It's just confusing to me why the emotional abuse is portrayed in this book as a good thing. Maybe to people who haven't ever experienced the living hell of a relationship with someone like Christian, it seems sexy and intriguing, but I think for people who have been in abusive relationships, this book will trigger a lot of painful memories and negativity.

    And so it continues.

    Please do not disturb! Fifty Shades of Grey tops list of books left in hotel rooms as we try to escape into fantasy


    Introducing Britain to bondage: Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James has smashed sales records

    Erotic novel 50 Shades of Grey is the number one title left in British hotel rooms, in fact a staggering 7,000 of them were abandoned in Travelodges the morning after a good read the night before.
    And the two other books in the E.L James trilogy were up there too - as were Suzanne Collins’ ‘Hunger Games’ and Stieg Larsson’s ‘Millennium’ books, suggesting that we are a nation escaping reality to delve into a fantasy world of crime, thriller and eroticism.
    Outside of the trilogies, the only book to enter the top 10 is ‘The Help’ by Kathryn Stockett taking 10th place. David Nicholls’ ‘One Day’ reached 11th place and Dawn French and Steve Jobs both enter the top 20 in 12th and 13th place respectively.
    Previous number ones left on the night stand have included Katie Price’s autobiography ‘Pushed to the Limit’, Piers Morgan’s ‘Don’t You Know Who I Am’ and ‘The Blair Years’ by Alastair Campbell.



    Hotel spokesman Shakila Ahmed said: 'It is interesting to see for the first time ever that our top ten books left behind index is not being dominated by celebrity biographies and chick lit books which it has done in the past.
    'Trilogies have dominated the charts this year with Fifty Shades of Grey topping the poll. So popular is this book, our hotel staff have reported that business and leisure customers of all ages are reading this trilogy.

    Escapism: It appears we indulge in a world of fantasy when we stay in hotels, with trilogies such as 'Fifty Shades' and 'The Hunger Games' topping the chart of books left in hotel rooms






    'Customers can not get enough of Mr Grey and Miss Steele, they are even reading the book whilst eating breakfast and dinner.
    'Our 2012 books left behind index has revealed we are a nation addicted to trilogies, this is probably so that we can flee the reality of gloom and doom for a world of fantasy.'
    During the last 12 months, around 21,786 books have been left behind in 36,500 Travelodge hotel rooms.
    A staggering 7,000 copies of Shades books were recovered from Travelodge hotel rooms across the country since its release earlier this year
    A sports book was found in all 57 London hotels during the Olympics, and staff in Newcastle found the most cookery books left behind in their hotels.
    Workers at the Scarborough Travelodge found a bag of Karma Sutra books which belonged to an elderly couple staying for a week.
    And staff in Essex, Newcastle and Liverpool recovered the most copies of ‘The Dukan Diet’.
    All books left behind at Travelodge hotels that are not claimed within three months are donated to Cancer Research UK charity shops across the UK.




    Books most commonly left behind:


    1. Fifty Shades of Grey E.L. James
    2. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Stieg Larsson
    3. The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets’ Nest Stieg Larsson
    4. Fifty Shades Freed E.L. James
    5. The Hunger Games Suzanne Collins
    6. The Girl Who Played With Fire Stieg Larsson
    7. Fifty Shades Darker E.L. James
    8. Catching Fire Suzanne Collins
    9. Mockingjay Suzanne Collins
    10. The Help Kathryn Stockett
    11. One Day David Nicholls
    12. A Tiny Bit Marvellous Dawn French
    13. Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography Steve Jobs
    14. Diary Of A Wimpy Kid Jeff Kinney
    15. The Brightest Star In The Sky Marian Keyes
    16. The Fry Chronicles Stephen Fry
    17. Room Emma Donoghue
    18. StrengthsFinder 2.0 Tom Rath
    19. The Confession John Grisham
    20. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy John Le Carre



    I wonder if it has occurred to the Daily Fail that FSOG is the most left-behind book because it is utter shite? I've done a fair amount of hotel hopping and I almost always have at least one book with me and I've yet to leave any of them behind because they are usually something I've read before and enjoyed so I take care to make sure they are packed when it comes time to move on.

    I spotted the copy of FSOG that caused much trouble recently on the shelf at the Bloke's brother's place and I asked his GF how she'd enjoyed it as it looked barely touched. The verdict I got back was that the first half was sort of ok, then it got really repetitive and then she couldn't be bothered finishing it as it read as though it was written by someone who hadn't had sex in years.

    Justin Bieber: 'I was approached for Fifty Shades of Grey role'
    Published Saturday, Sep 15 2012, 1:06pm EDT | By Zeba Blay

    Justin Bieber has revealed that he was approached to play a role in the on-screen adaptation of the adult novel Fifty Shades of Grey.

    In an interview on The Jonathan Ross Show tonight (September 15), the 'Never Say Never' singer said that producers suggested that he take on a part in the highly-anticipated film.

    However, he refused to say whether the role in question is that of male lead and billionaire BDSM enthusiast Christian Grey.

    "They actually want me to be in the movie," Bieber admitted, though he did not elaborate on the alleged talks.

    The 18-year-old singer's girlfriend Selena Gomez has also been mentioned as a potential candidate for female lead Anastasia Steele, though she has said she has no interest in starring in the film.

    Fifty Shades of Grey is currently in development at Universal Studios.

    Bieber is gearing up for the launch of his upcoming 'Believe' world tour later in the month.

    Sure Justin, if you refuse to answer everyone will assume you were actually wanted for the lead role and not some tiny cameo appearance. Newsflash: Christian Grey is a 27-year-old man, not a teenage lesbian.

    I don't know what you're talking about. I think he'd make a great Anastasia!

    I can't believe I wasted my time reading this drivel of a book. But what disturbs me most is that I further went on to read the second one, just to see if it would get any better! I tossed the third one in the bin. Don't tell me, they have beautiful kidlets and live happily ever after in a dungeon filling their days with gasps, oh my's, lip biting and multiple orgasms just by looking at each other?
