It can't be ignored any longer. Everywhere I turn — moms, non-moms, some of my dude friends, lady magazines, SNL — are raving about this romance novel (aka the so-called mommy porn), Fifty Shades of Grey.
WTF? I don't get it. Why a book that's in a genre frequented by grandmas worldwide is sweeping the nation is flabbergasting. And a book that's not even that good, for that matter — the author herself is shocked by the Shades success, quoted as saying, "I'm not a great writer."
Have you read the book? Is it dumb? It sounds dumb. I'm still debating going Grey, but might go rent a porn instead.
