Some of my friends have read it and one quote was 'its all about sex, no story whatsoever and badly written'....don't think I can be bothered wasting my time with it. I a bit fussy about what I read as don't read as much as i used to.

We took Alicia to our friends twins 3rd birthday party last week, and one of the other parents sat there in full view of everyone reading this book. A tad inappropriate I thought.

Indeed. Terrible taste in reading - and all those 3 years olds would be horribly corrupted.  :)

Am on the 2nd book now - keeping up with my girlfriend.
Standing in the shadows, hiding from the light
Reach out in the darkness, and hold on for your life
All the fear of the future, all the emptiness inside
When the moment of truth arrives, hey, you can run but you can't hide

Don't argue with the ignorant and stupid; they'll take you down to their level and beat you with experience!

FIFTY SHEDS OF GREY

We tried various positions - round the back, on the side, up against a
wall...
but in the end we came to the conclusion the bottom of the garden was the only place for a good shed.

She stood before me, trembling in my shed.
"I'm yours for the night," she gasped, "You can do whatever you want with me."
So I took her to McDonalds.

She knelt before me on the shed floor and tugged gently at first, then
harder until finally it came.
I moaned with pleasure. Now for the other boot.

Ever since she read THAT book, I've had to buy all kinds of ropes, chains and shackles.
She still manages to get into the shed, though.

"Put on this rubber suit and mask," I instructed, calmly.
"Mmmm, kinky!" she purred.
"Yes," I said, "You can't be too careful with all that asbestos in the shed roof."

"I'm a very naughty girl," she said, biting her lip. "I need to be
punished."
So I invited my mum to stay for the weekend.

"Harder!" she cried, gripping the workbench tightly. "Harder!"
"Okay," I said. "What's the gross national product of Nicaragua?"

I lay back exhausted, gazing happily out of the shed window.
Despite my concerns about my inexperience, my rhubarb had come up a treat.

"Are you sure you can take the pain?" she demanded, brandishing stilettos.
"I think so," I gulped. "Here we go, then," she said, and showed me the
receipt.

"Hurt me!" she begged, raising her skirt as she bent over my workbench.
"Very well," I replied. "You've got fat ankles and no dress sense."

"Are you sure you want this?" I asked. "When I'm done, you won't be able to sit down for weeks."
She nodded.
"Okay," I said, putting the three-piece suite on eBay.

"Punish me!" she cried. "Make me suffer like only a real man can!"
"Very well," I replied, leaving the toilet seat up.

"Pleasure and pain can be experienced simultaneously," she said, gently
massaging my back as we listened to her Coldplay CD

The titles of the copycat stuff amuses me, they're in your local supermarket, pick a number and a colour.

My favourite is Eighty Days Yellow. WTF??
The lenses inside of me that paint the world black. The pools of poison, the scarlet mist, that spill over into rage.

Any woman you walk past in the street.
A lot of it is wanting to know what the fuss is about, then having a giggle. That's what I've come across anyway.

I'd rather read 50 Sheds Of Grey.
