I’ve heard a lot about the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy by E.L. James.  Just like the Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series, the trilogy has been flying off the bookshelves.  It seems when something new or different or edgy is introduced to the mass public, everyone wants a piece of the action.  The NOOK and the Kindle became “the” way to digest reading material.  Consumers just “had” to have the latest and greatest iPhones, iPads and iPods.  Hunger Games was a must-see movie and the list goes on.  Admittedly, I haven’t read the first two authors mentioned, I still read books the old-fashioned way, I don’t own anything iRelated and I typically wait for films to hit the discount theaters.  Crazes are fun to get caught up in, but I typically find that’s all it is: hype.  I’d rather save my money for a sure thing that doesn’t result in disappointment.  Maybe I’m missing out, maybe I’m not.

If you’ve read E.L. James’ trilogy, am I missing out?
