Fifty Shades of Grey…

I haven’t gotten past Chapter Two.

And I’m usually a fast reader. Rarely takes me more than a day to finish a book.

Yet, I bought this book last month when I was in Virginia. Over three weeks ago…

Mr. Grey has just visited the hardware store, bought some coveralls and I forget what else. Then agreed to have his photo taken.

It went something like this at the bookstore in Virginia:

Me: What’s with this ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ book?

Nice Cashier Lady at the Bookstore: We cannot keep it on the shelves.

Me: Oh. Have you read it?

Nice Cashier Lady at the Bookstore: I’m halfway through the third one.

I glanced back at the shelves. And there are TWO more books…

Me: I know NOTHING about it. Zero. Just keep hearing it mentioned with snickers and inside jokes. So I’m curious to know what the fuss is about.

Nice Cashier Lady at the Bookstore: It isn’t literature or anything.

Me: Is it good?

Though she is on the third book, Nice Cashier Lady at the Bookstore can’t quite come up with a response…

We did the ‘enjoy the book’ and ‘have a nice day’ thing and I left with the book.

But here we are WEEKS later. And I keep reading a page or two every once in a while. Last night, I finished Chapter Two–but didn’t start Chapter Three.

For those who’ve read it. Don’t ruin it for me. But do I keep reading???

Or just forget it?

      Hmmm….I take it you’ve read it??? Is that what they use the masking tape from the hardware store for?

      • Stella says:

        No, I haven’t read it. I just heard it was “erotica”. I don’t need to read it, I grew up in the 80’s and thanks to Madonna had more than my fair share of “erotic” books.

    Keep reading. It gets better after chapter 2 or 3.

      Bear in mind that I had a slice of ‘Happy 1st Day of Summer Cake’ for lunch. Then another that I’m calling dinner. Though I do like my ‘sugar’ I am feeling a bit sick–so I had to take a break at the barfing part. (Plus I’m not really a ‘barfy’ type drinker…) Probably, I should try to eat something besides cake. It is all I’ve eaten today…I will continue on later this evening.

    I havent personally read it but heard it gets better in like chapter 3 or so. Some of the girls at work are living it once they got past a certain point.

    • Amy Lauria says:

      Living it? Or loving it? Hmmm….Anyways, I’m just getting into Chapter 8 now. Either going to need to stop reading, or find another place to read. In the family room with children around seems wrong. Cupcake Wars on TV. Dogs Snoozing. Reading Fifty Shades of Grey. Daughter chatting with me…Something seems wrong with that picture, right?

      Maybe you should get a copy and we’ll round up a ‘book group’ this weekend? Hahaha…
