I was running low on storage space on the iPad the other day. I started going through items that could be deleted or that I knew I could somehow retrieve again. I came across my library of books that I either wanted to read, started to read or am going to read...eventually. Can you believe that I started reading the ever popular (by the women, of course), Fifty Shades of Grey, and never completed it? That is odd for me. I am usually all over pop culture and like to be up on all things in the news. This definitely fits into that category. I am not sure if I wasn't impressed (at first) or I just didn't have the time to read my mind, let alone an entire book series.
I am guessing the book's popularity will once again heat back up with the release of the movie trailer this morning. Here is a look at it. Take note of the music playing behind the scenes.
Fifty Shades of Grey is the hotly anticipated film adaptation of the bestselling book that has become a global phenomenon. Since its release, the “Fifty Shades” trilogy has been translated into 51 languages worldwide and sold more than 100 million copies in e-book and print—making it one of the biggest and fastest-selling book series ever.
