The Stir has a funny article featuring some of the best bad reviews of Fifty Shades of Grey, many are quite amusing.
The Huffington Post has an article about some other erotic novels through time.
In Westlake Ohio a radio station held a book burning for Fifty Shades of Grey. I could go on a rant about book burnings, but I’ll spare you. The best response to this that I have seen was that they just elevated the book by adding it to the list of books burned.
A German version of the books was published on July 9 with 500,000 copies sold out. It is called Geheimes Verlangen, translated as Secret Desires. Is there anyone from Germany reading who can comment on how it’s being received?
