So as I make my way thru the 2nd book of the Trilogy I learned this today…E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey has become the fastest selling paperback on record. Experts say the success of the books, has been driven by frustrated middle-aged mothers. Hey I’m not a middle aged mother…some would disagree…haha! The series is about a depraved relationship between a young woman and rich older lover. How did the series get so popular so fast? Word of mouth. An expert for The Bookseller magazine says “It is highly unusual for a book to sell so well without there being a film adaptation or the author being well known, like Dan Brown or J.K. Rowling.”
What book or book series do you love, but would never admit it to friends?
