My Fifty Shades

Ok, so I am reading it.
and I am loving it.  There I said it--- Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James has captivated me.  The World's Greatest Husband has commented that he has seen me read many books but not quite like this.
I've justified this quick read by clarifying I work in a library and should know what all the latest book rage is about. Right? Don't you think? Oh, Just agree with me.

So my thoughts on Fifty Shades..... I've tried to see past the whole dom/sub/sex thing and understand the complex relationship that seems to be intensifying as I zip through book two.  Not as easy as it sounds some of those chapters have made me feel like a college girl.  It's hot.  I've told myself over and over, I am an adult, I am an adult, I am an adult.  Which is really ridiculous, if you think that as a 41 year old woman I still have to tell myself it's ok to read this "smokin hot" read - I am a grown woman for crying out loud.  The whole controversy of
Should you read it?
Have you read it?
Do you have to load up a shopping cart full of stuff to find the courage to have the book hidden at the bottom of the cart?
Should libraries have it on the shelf?
.......It all truly speaks volume to where we are as a society.

Three  funny things about me and my Fifty Shades.

Not every girl can say their dad bought them the book.  But I can.  Yes, when my Mom and Dad visited a few weeks ago, my father - standing by a rather large display of books waved my mother and I down asking, "Is the book we were just talking about?" he proceeded to proudly put two copies in our cart.  We both flashed him a look that said, "Really?"  I don't think he really knew what he was doing.

The World's Greatest Husband and I have had a few giggles since I've started reading.  The best was when I noticed he posted an appointment in our synced calendars..... 9 PM -  Book Club.   I keep reminding him this late night reading is all for his benefit.

Have you seen  the SNL Fifty Shades of Grey Mother's Day skit?
OMG it's hilarious.

Ladies, my vote is.... read it, love Christian, Ana and your husband too!
Laters, Baby
