Default Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy/Twilight Fanfiction

Anyone reading these? The main characters were supposedly based on Edward and Bella and the books keep creeping up on the bestseller lists. Also just saw the books are now out at Target and Costco after being so hard to locate and there is a movie deal in the works for the first book.

From what I've heard it is a very very racy book.

Yeah I've heard it's not for the timid. Might have to add it to my reading list!

Yup, I've heard it called "p.o.r.n. for women." Wow.

The technical term for it is erotica. I've also heard that although it's been widely publicized, it's actually not very good. Still, someone might like it.

Had a bishop tell all ward members to not even pick it up b/c according to him, has led to at least one ward member to struggle w/dddd addiction now.

This alone, makes me not want to read them.

Besides, I'm still having too much fun reading the Hunger Games series.

Haha, me too! I hate the whole twilight thing. But I've also heard on TV that Shades of Gray is a naughty book. I wonder why it has drawn so much press.

I bought the first one before I knew what they were about. Things don't usually bother me but I could not even make it through the first erotic seen. It was pretty graphic! Definitely dddd in my mind!
