Almost every bloody book on the shelves now seems to be of this sort of genre. All seem to have the same subject, submissive woman dominated by a man.

I noticed that over the weekend while Xmas shopping. I'm still shocked WalMart carries 50 Shades. Very doubtful any other book can top 50 Shades, and I'm not certain that's a good thing. I'm looking forward to the 2nd and 3rd books, I've barely read any reviews about them, as I'd like to find out for myself.
Holy crap...E.L James is my latest friend on Goodreads! :)

Or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

I'm not even going to read the other 2 books in the 50 Shades series. I flipped through them, but some things grossed me out. Plus they are better books out there :)

FIFTY SHADES OF GREY - (a husbands point of view)

The missus bought a Paperback,
down Shepton Mallet way,
I had a look inside her bag;
T'was "fifty shades of grey".

Well I just left her to it,
And at ten I went to bed.
An hour later she appeared;
The sight filled me with dread...

In her left she held a rope;
And in her right a whip!
She threw them down upon the floor,
And then began to strip.

Well fifty years or so ago;
I might have had a peek;
But Mabel hasn't weathered well;
She's eighty four next week!!

Watching Mabel bump and grind;
Could not have been much grimmer.
And things then went from bad to worse;
She toppled off her Zimmer!

She struggled back upon her feet;
A couple minutes later;
She put her teeth back in and said
I am a dominator !!

Now if you knew our Mabel,
You'd see just why I spluttered,
I'd spent two months in traction
For the last complaint I'd uttered.

She stood there nude and naked
Bent forward just a bit
I went to hold her, sensual like
and stood on her left t*t!

Mabel screamed, her teeth shot out;
My god what had I done!?
She moaned and groaned then shouted out:
"Step on the other one"!!

Well readers, I can't tell no more;
About what occurred that day.
Suffice to say my jet black hair,
Turned fifty shades of grey.
Come on you Tigers.

Made me laugh and laugh, and with a bad back and nausea, that's awesome that anything could!
