Back in August Random House and E L James announced the availability of Fifty Shades of Grey in Hardcover. These were designed to be available only to UK residents, but I managed to order them from Amazon UK and get them. I hear that a few days later they stopped shipping outside of the UK, but I can’t confirm. But these are a great gift for the Fifty Shades of Grey fan.
Inside the books is nice too, they all have E L’s signature and a synopsis of the book. But the cover also spills out into the trim of the inside of the books. You can’t see it in my pictures but the books also have a ribbon bookmark.
I don’t recommend these books as reading books, they’re a bit pricey compared to the softcover books, which are better for reading over and over again. But, these books have a lot of nice little touches that make them worth the extra price. If you want to order, check out Random House’s website which lists all of their sellers. E L James has said that they are looking into making them available to US readers, but we haven’t gotten any news yet. Hopefully, soon.
