50 Shades of Grey.....

This was first mentioned in a fishing thread I contributed to, and I hadnt really heard of it.

However it was recommended to me by a friend, and I read some reviews and thought I'd see what it was all about.

Downloaded it onto my Kindle for less than 3 quid. Bargain.

Anyone else reading it? The reviews are mixed, very divided, seems to be a love it /hate it going on. I've heard it referred to as Mummyporn.

Early days but quite enjoying it, I like a book you can get into easily (short attention span me), and it is easy to read, and Christian is quite compelling from the start........

I've read all three. And I do love them. And yes I would describe it as mummy porn, though the 1st one is more heavier, than the next two. Steamer than mills & boons.

You will need to read all 3 in the series to understand the story.

Gravy Queen and Crystal Writer,

I do not read very much fiction in English, however, I shall take this recommendation.

Thanks for posting ...

Ciao, and have a nice Sunday.
Margi.
