50 Shades of Grey

Wow, I see references to Fifty Shades of Grey: Book One of the Fifty Shades Trilogy everywhere now.  I saw a large display at a local book chain today, the author has been all over the media, and even Saturday Night Live has done spoofs already! This has become such a phenomenon that the books are now one of the fastest selling book series of all time!  They have sold over 10 million copies.  My wife will be reading it soon for her book club and from what I hear it is pretty steamy.  I have heard bits and pieces while listening to Kidd Kraddick in the Morning…they have been reading passages and substituting funny product names for body part references.  Needless to say it is pretty hilarious.

It just goes to show how connected the world is now…as soon as a book or product or anything hits the media and social networks it can become an instant hit.  I for one am happy for the author.  As I saw in one interview, she could not believe this was all happening.  Congratulations on the success!
