  1. “And has anyone read these Fifty Shades of Grey? How is it?”

    If I may quote Libby from my book club: “She only knows three verbs, and one of them is SMIRKED. It’s awful, and yet … strangely compelling.”

    At the bookstore where I work, we joke that it’s a backlash to Twilight…after so many years of almost no sex, we now get a huge overdose.

    In our Library I check if things meet our selection criteria before we buy them… Just a thought.
