“I think the guy read it and didn’t like the book or something, so he splashed someone with BBQ sauce.”
First and foremost: *hugs Tina ferociously and squeeeeeees in her ear!!!* (thank goodness for virtual squee’ing. Less physical damage that way, ’cause if this was in person, Tina’s ears would be ringing for a week!)
OMG TINA!!!! I love it! L-O-V-E —-> LOVE!!!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!!
As many of you know, E.L. James just finished a tremendously popular book signing tour, and her last stop was in New York. My friend Tina went to the signing and enjoyed a wonderful evening with E.L. James and other author friends, and LOOK what she got for me in the process!!! The entire trilogy in print! I may have went by the way of digital e-books, but I LOVE displaying my absolute favorites in print in my book room.
Just watched the 20/20 segment with E.L. James. WOW!! She is selling a book a second… *phew* boggles the brain. How awesome!! Congratulations E.L.!! Christian is winning the world over!!
So what’d you guys think? If you missed it, I will link to it once it appears on Youtube. Definitely worth the watch. Actually, the whole show has a little “sexual intrigue” going on, I guess to go with the “Fifty Shades” theme.
For those of you who haven’t read it yet, and are curious, here is the E.L. James – Fifty Shades Trilogy Reading Order. It’s completely addictive, so much fun, and will leave you breathless! Check out my review of the first book, and you’ll see what I mean. 🙂
The news links are still coming in fast and furious and the media is still going crazy with this Fifty Shades trilogy. Interesting stuff to read and watch (and on occasion, frustrating, ’cause I still tend to think they’re overdoing it with the whole “sex” aspect).
As Jan on my Facebook page mentioned:
Jan: I got frustrated watching Good Morning America talking about 50 Shades. All they talked about was how hot and sexy the book is. They seem to be missing the point that it has hit the best seller list, because it also has a great story and fascinating characters.
Christian Grey of the Fifty Shades of Grey sensation, has officially made the big time. With all of the latest media attention, it looks like he’s found a whole new slew of readers, and “Fifty Fanatics”. As popular as this series already was, and as die-hard as we are, we knew it was only a matter of time before Christian would soon become everyone’s obsession. Being on the NY Times best sellers list, book clubs discovering and devouring this series, and spreading the word… we knew he’d be HUGE. It’s inevitable. Christian can only be destined for greatness. A Master of the Universe, indeed.
