I think I changed my mine. I can't really pick anyone. Fifty is just Fifty. I have 5 other ladies reading this now.

On the fifty shades face book they are all suggesting people to play Christian.

Okay so I started the book really late in the game and am only about half way through the first book. I have been very busy and finding time to read is hard. My thoughts are....YES the book is HOT! Although a bit unbelievable but I guess that is what makes it hot. I don't see how this could be a movie without a X rating. I can't think of anyone that could play Christian, mostly because he is suposed to only be 27. I think that is right. I am glad it is on my Kindle so that I can read in public without anyone knowing what I am reading ;) The lady that wrote the book was on the View today. I had the volume off but turned it up and sat infront of the TV when I noticed her. She said the only thing big she has bought since the book was a car. They said "what a Rolls" she said "no a VW" OMG!!!!!! REALLY?!

I would of bought the Audi R8;) I'm almost done with the third. Let's just say my husband loves me reading these books. It's so hard to talk about it here with minors.
Keep reading Angi. The 2nd book explains a lot about who & why Fifty is Fifty.

I wonder what would happen to the ladies, if they read fifty at a magic mike screening?

I read it. An excellent book with 29 5 star reviews on Amazon. NOT erotic at all though ....Sorry.

If you want erotic, try "The Sleeping Beauty trilogy" by Anne Rice. Extremely erotic.

I have to admit, I am surprised that you read that series. :D

Jacqui....I never read the Sleeping Beauty Trilogy....I do a lot of research for books, and I've read a few of Anne Rice, and was really surprised to see that she wrote these, especially after I had just read Christ the Lord, by her. I had to laugh when I read your post because I'm not really into erotic books. I did love Fifty Shades though.

I wonder if society is ready for the baby boom from fifty shades and magic mike being out at the same time?

Got the "50" book for my wife, who's enjoying it IMMENSELY... :p

My excessively puritanical cousin has called us, at least once daily, since I bought it, demanding that we throw the book away, as (she feels) it degrades women... :rolleyes:

Anyone here feeling degraded? ;)

I never felt that it was degrading! They're both adults and she could have left at anytime! It's just a story and I loved it! It may not have been the best writing but the story and the words just get to you!
David did you read them? ,

The president of the club tells us which book we are going to read. We all read it. We then discuss it. I don't know if I'm up for that, because my taste in books is very selective. For instance, the book series you all were talking about on Terry's thread doesn't interest me at all.

I happen to agree with you, this might be a little hard to get started... I would love to be apart of this though.

50 shades of grey, now I understand.

Did you download the book Dmmj?



I don't even need to read this book, I can just read what you guys are posting about it and it saves me Ooooo about 300 and something pages right? LOL. I vote Hunger Games. :D I think we should bring it to a vote and Neal should decide since he started the "hot" mess.. ;)
