Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James



I owe a lot of people an apology.

Yea, I judge people by the type of books that they read.

If someone tells me that he/she reads something by Eric Jerome Dickey, for instance, I instantly turn my nose up and think "Really!"

However, if a person tells me that he/she love books by Zora Neale Hurston, Jonathan Franzen, J. California Copper, then I am ready to eagerly engage that person.

I know, I know, I know, but I do acknowledge that I am "a work in progress."

So, I have seen E L James on television numerous times, and many, many, many friends have told me about this book, but I thought "Why would I spend my time reading trash?"

However, when one of my guy friends told me that he learned about communication from Fifty Shades of Grey, I knew that I had to give it a try. You know that I could not pass on a book that just might teach me something.

So, I downloaded and eagerly read Fifty Shades of Grey.

Let me say:

I.  LOVE.  THIS.  BOOK.

READ.  THIS.  BOOK.

Yep, I owe a lot of people an apology........

However, I am thankful that I DO have an open mind and is willing to try almost anything once.

I am grateful that I read this book, and I know that you will be too.

Get it today, and begin the journey.

If you have already read it, please forgive me for incorrectly judging you!

Soooooo, my next read is Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. Why don't you join me, and try not to judge me? (People like what they like!)

Now I'm getting ready to judge you because "water for Elephants" sounds like a book for nerds. Lol this was another good read. Have a great day!

Try 50 Shades for me! (Snicker)

Jacqueline, I loved Water for Elephants but couldn't get into the 50 shades of grey thing somehow. Cheers

Had this been the first review I saw, I would've judged you, haha! But after seeing several of your other reviews, my thought was what in the world made her read this! I'm trying to be more open minded with my book choices, but , um, for me - this is a stretch!

Shannon, it was a stretch, but it was soooo much more than I expected!
