Shelves of Grey

Heartwarming scene this weekend at Barnes & Noble: a mother and her daughter both looking at a copy of 50 Shades of Grey. They seemed to be bonding over it.

Actually, I was more alarmed by the number of copies of the book B&N had. Not only were there two big shelves filled with the novel, there were two hand dollies filled to capacity too, books just waiting to be placed on the shelves once the other batch are gone. This is how fast the book is selling: the shelves may be filled now but they’ll be gone soon so we better have a bunch more on standby!

  1. I’ll be one of the ones buying this book at a garage sale for .50. Can’t see buying a book that’s supposedly not even written well just because of the media attention.
