And the literary world just erotically asphyxiated itself!

Snowdragons Icequeen E.L. James' Twilight-inspired pornographic novel 50 Shades of Grey has sold over 12 million units globally, officially becoming the best-selling British book of all time.

Oh mah poorly-written, kinky goodness!

Don't get us wrong, we love ourselves some sexy bedtime stories, but COME ON (pun intended)!

Ah well, congrats Snowdragons! What's next?? Perhaps a Harry Potter inspired-porno? 50 Wand Licks of Wonder? We want IN on that red chamber of secret pain!

Accio dragon-saddles and mystic ball-gags!

    This makes no sense. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows sold 44 million. Perhaps he means bestselling of 2012 but seriously… Not even close.

    The source article actually says that 50 Shades is the best selling book –in Britain. this article on Perez is inaccurate.

    Re: mkRe: Anna – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows has sold 4 million copies in the UK, 50 Shades of Grey has sold 5.3 million. The difference is 50 shades includes digital sales. In terms of physical books HP&DH has sold more.
    However, total sales of the Shades trilogy are 40 million worldwide and Harry Potter is 450 million. Clearly Perez needs to have more details.
    Harry Potter will always be king.

    Really, this is just silly…

    Every Potter book alone either approaches or passes what this trilogy has done total so far. What is the meaning of this nonsense? What possible logic or twisting of numbers could you be using to make anywhere near this kind of statement? I really do believe this is one of the worst things this site has ever said. SMH, just SMFH…

    That is sad..That women of that age can hop in on a bandwagon fad and get so influenced by a poorly written book to the point they try new things and buy sex toys in the book..

    And men are the stupid ones? ROFL, women by far are a lot dumber. You don't see men hopping on stupid bandwagons. Or screaming and crying over celebrities. Amazing women act like that….



  8. 8

    Amazing how stupid women are..

    Re: NookiesWA
    Yes because men don't jump on bandwagons at all…..
    (note the heavy sarcasm)

    Re: Cc – We don't..If we do, we don't act like morons.

    It's not arguable. Twilight moms? 50 shades? I could go on and on. Naming children after characters from a book? Men do not scream and cry when we see a celebrity. Men don't follow a tween star around all day..Women act irrational.

    Re: NookiesWA – Irrational huh? Because it's women killing people in extraordinary numbers every single day of the year, right? Yup, just went there. tbh though I think your a troll and don't really mean the things you say on this site everyday. If that's true, great work, I can appreciate it.

    Re: NookiesWA – Not so much bandwagoning, but I've seen grown men straight up bawl at football games. And living in Arizona, the amount of news coverage when Steve Nash left the Suns showed how much men (and women) are emotionally invested with these players. Also, things like comic books, graphic novels, and video games. These include women as well. Females do pretty much take over the Twilight fandoms though. But I've seen your posts before and I'm sure you will just tell me how wrong I am and not buckle about the fact then men can be stupid ridiculous about things too.

    im sorry i refuse to read filth except on this web site …



  14. 14

    i hate pornmances. So boring



  15. 15

    utter nonsense book of TRASH

    Perez - why do you always refer to Fifty as "Twlight inspired?" Have you read the books? So completely off.



  17. 17

    Re: Kerri – It's twilight fan fiction, that's a well known fact. It's pathetic how people think this is a good book. If anything it shows the downfall of society that such horrible shit is popular when it's nothing but hyped up porn



  18. 18

    Re: Kerri

    Actually, it started off as TWILIGHT fanfiction, so Perez isn't wrong on that.

    Re: NookiesWA – Anytime I ever hear about stalkers, they are always men… so…



  20. 20

    I am amazed that this piece of crap book series is so popular. They're not hot or erotic AT ALL. I think some people buy it just to see what the fuss is all about. I refuse to believe that this many people actually like it.



  21. 21

    It amazes me that these books are best sellers…the writing is just shameful. And to think responsible adults want to make movies out of them is just C.R.A.Z.Y

    Re: sick_girl – Well most men are just spoonfed that sports BS from birth, but thats not bandwagons..I basically mean bandwagon as in a fad.

    Re: MewLover34 – Killing people for profit really isn't irrational. It's just being a shitty human being, and doing harm for monetary gains. If I sold guns to terrorists, it wouldn't make me irrational. It'd just make me a greedy sociopath.

    Re: Chalky – Women are known to do irrational things during breakups..hence why men always joke about "omg you're going to get your tires slashed"..Women have slashed tires, threw paint on cars, and even lied about being raped following a breakup. The stalker thing is irrelevant and stupid. You can't even say "you look pretty" in the workplace without getting hit with a sexual harassment lawsuit these days. If you're attractive the girl finds the "persistence" to be admirable. If you're ugly, its stalking..Plenty of women stalk men, its just they don't report it..Especially if said women is even remotely bangable. You never hear of any females getting arrested for stalking an actor probably because they are men, and well probably ended up screwing her.
