And I’m usually a fast reader. Rarely takes me more than a day to finish a book.
Yet, I bought this book last month when I was in Virginia. Over three weeks ago…
Mr. Grey has just visited the hardware store, bought some coveralls and I forget what else. Then agreed to have his photo taken.
It went something like this at the bookstore in Virginia:
Me: What’s with this ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ book?
Nice Cashier Lady at the Bookstore: We cannot keep it on the shelves.
Me: Oh. Have you read it?
Nice Cashier Lady at the Bookstore: I’m halfway through the third one.
I glanced back at the shelves. And there are TWO more books…
Me: I know NOTHING about it. Zero. Just keep hearing it mentioned with snickers and inside jokes. So I’m curious to know what the fuss is about.
Nice Cashier Lady at the Bookstore: It isn’t literature or anything.
Me: Is it good?
Though she is on the third book, Nice Cashier Lady at the Bookstore can’t quite come up with a response…
We did the ‘enjoy the book’ and ‘have a nice day’ thing and I left with the book.
But here we are WEEKS later. And I keep reading a page or two every once in a while. Last night, I finished Chapter Two–but didn’t start Chapter Three.
For those who’ve read it. Don’t ruin it for me. But do I keep reading???
Or just forget it?
