50 Shades of Grey author EL James was reported to make around £100k a day at the book's height, and the upcoming film will make her millions. Some are outspoken about the fact that one of the most lucrative and famous book franchise of the moment is one so widely derided for its lack of literary value. But I tend to disagree.
You know, I never, ever snub my nose at other people’s tastes. There is room enough in this world for every type of literature for every type of reader. Reading should bring pleasure. It should make you laugh and cry and feel things that are bigger than yourself. A story doesn’t necessarily need to be refined literature to be enjoyable and satisfying. So do I think the 50 Shades series is the most well-written trilogy on the market? Probably not. (And yes, I read all three.) But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have worth.
This is were you get to read about what's going on inside my head. I apologize in advance - the place is a wreck.
