Been busy reading!!!

Yep, just wasted a couple days of my life reading the "Fifty Shades of Grey," Trilogy.  I reviewed it here on my Book Review blog.  I hear they have sold the film rights (not sure if that's the right term) for the books.  I would love to know how on earth they will make that movie without it being a full blown "porn," movie?   Not that I will be seeing it as I don't go to the movies.

Anyhow, it has been a good time to catch up on reading as it has been too hot and humid for me.  Monday I never left the house, and although I did venture into town yesterday it was just a quick couple of stops and straight back home.

Now today I am going out and about, as I am meeting Jane again in Orillia.  I'll remember to take my camera and take photos.  Orillia is around half way for both Jane and I.  So check back in tomorrow for a full account of how we got on!!!

My apologies for not visiting blogs these past couple of days, will catch up later in the week,

I've just finished reading the first one. I learnt a few things! BUT, I felt like ripping the page out after I read the two words 'inner goddess' for the hundredth time! M

Not got onto those books yet! Think all my friends have and they have all been raving about it for various different reasons!!
Will have to make mine winter reading I think as there is far too much to be done at this time of year for me now.
Take care

Have fun meeting Jane....and you don't know what you have missed in me complaining about the weather. We have had days and days of temps over 100ºF, with one 108....we have had a few days the past week or two that did not reach a hundred....and we had 6 minutes of rain the other day...but other than that I cannot remember when it has rained. I cannot remember the last time the yard was actually mowed.

Even my mother is talking about that book!

No I haven't read it.

Have a lovely meet up. Wish I could be there too!

I found them online for free, thank god I didn't waste any money on them.

Could well have been written by a 16 yr old with a vivid sexual imagination. Utter crap.

My sources tell me the "grey" books may somewhat promote abusive relationships, and that they describe some unsafe practices...you are supposed to have a "safe word"...I am told! What did you think?
