Congratulations to E L James for winning another award! Fifty Shades of Grey was chosen for the popular fiction book of the year in the National Book Awards, “the Oscars of the literary world.” The public can also vote for their favorite book of the year from their award winning list.
Well now they’ve done a study on it, it’s official, they jumped the gun when they classified Fifty Shades of Grey as “Mommy Porn.” Really, they needed a study on this? Yes, and the Weissman Report reports that 20% of readers are male and 15% of readers are over age 55. What I think is most interesting is that this is from data between January and June. I suspect that readership probably expanded more into the male, single, or “older” woman groups the longer the book has been out.
I like this article in The Guardian, nothing earth shattering in it, but it does reinforce what we know about Erika. That’s she’s just a down to earth woman, not too different then the rest of us. She’s also working on writing a book, not from Christian’s POV.
As most of you know by now, Erika has been in LA on a working trip. Apparently she met with Jack Morrissey, who is Jack Morrissey you ask? Well, he’s a Producer, but he also happens to be the partner of Bill Condon. Bill Condon directed Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Dreamgirls and The Big C. It could be coincidence since Erika is a big Twilight fan. The script hasn’t been written yet, which leads me to believe their wont be a director announcement for a bit. But, it doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun speculating.
