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?
It seems as though everywhere you turn their are teen idols doing things that you wouldn’t want your children to see or copy. Well, sometimes there are some good ones still out there. Check it out! Rrooff!!!
TAYLOR SWIFT says that though she has been approached to do scandalous photo shoots and wear more revealing outfits on the red carpet, she has always declined offers to show off more skin than she felt was necessary. Taylor explains: “I like wearing pretty dresses and I like trying out new styles, but I don’t feel comfortable taking my clothes off. I wouldn’t wear tiny amounts of clothing in my real life, so I don’t think it’s necessary to wear that stuff in photo shoots.”
You know how when you go on vacation you always wonder if people actually miss you. Well, my friend Mangolia called me every day I was gone! You have to listen to these voicemails. They are great! Man, I feel missed! Rrooff!!!
