Who's reading "Fifty Shades of Grey?"

I didn't even realize this book existed until two weeks ago.  I woke up one early morning and CNN was abuzz about the so called "Mommy Porn."  At first I scoffed at the fact that was news.  But like events happen, I couldn't stop hearing about it.  All of a sudden, people around me were talking about a book, none other than one of the Fifty Shades trilogy.  What's interesting is how fast everyone seemed to be going through one entire book.  When a good friend of mine who lives in Nigeria, asked "Have you read...?" and I said "Fifty shades of Grey?"  I knew I had to get the darn book.  Just like others she went through the book pretty fast, looking forward to the rest of the series.

This is why I love my iPad.  With the push of a button, I had all three books downloaded (currently reading.)  At first with all the stereotyped hype, I thought the book was strictly for married women; long-term marriage, trying to get their grove back, rekindle relationships with their husbands.  Simply put this book would resonate with any adult interested in reading it (although written from a female perspective.)

"When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms."
