The novel Fifty Shades of Grey has been the buzz around the office for the last couple of weeks. Women who would have never admitted reading a romance novel, much less something they consider erotica, and with BDSM! They don’t know the terms, but they’re gasping.
If they only knew what sits on my bookshelves. Holy Crap! They probably would … But regardless of my opinion of the book, I hope it brings readers in droves, scouring Amazon, B & N and other e-book sellers for more of the same, and better. I think these women (and men) will be surprised at how much more the Romance genre has to offer.
Harry Potter and Twilight inspired teens and young adults to read, maybe Shades of Grey with have a simular affect adults who haven’t picked up a novel in years.
