50-50 chance if I’ll read 50 Shades of Grey

For Shame!

K, so I haven’t read 50 Shades of Grey yet but my sister emailed me the other day: “Hey, I see you marked 50 shades of grey as “to read” on Goodreads. We got it into our library. Linda told me one of the patrons said the book should come with a vibrator. D’oh! Enjoy. :>”

Now I’m wondering whether I want to read it or not. Or, maybe I will and just not admit to it.

Maybe the author went through the Kama Sutra and picked out her 50 favourite positions and wrote a story around them? I have no idea. I wonder if some people would be judgmental of me if I told them I read it? Would they think I was sex-starved? Sex-crazed? Either way, they’d know that I indulged in some page-porn. Plus, I’m not the type that would want to sit around book-club-style and discuss any of the romps in this book and compare them to real life relations.

“Not right now, Mommy’s busy!”

Imagine if someone you knew had a copy and you asked to borrow it. Then they give it to you and it’s all dog-eared, or the pages are wrinkly like they’d either kept reading the same smutty excerpts over and over again, or had it in the bathtub – or worse- you’d wonder how else it got a damaged. Then it’d be your turn to be judgmental/leery/curious/creeped-out.

To help – or hinder – your decision to read it let comedian, Gilbert Godfried introduce you to this book:


There’s Room – book review

RoomRoom by Emma Donoghue
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I wasn’t sure I wanted to read this book at first, after hearing what it was about. I decided to read it after all, since it was one of the books loaded onto the Kobo reader I borrowed from the library. Within the first few pages I knew I wanted to finish reading it, if only from the way the book is written as the point of view from the main character. It was a stressful read at times but I’m glad I finished it.
