Who knew so many positive events could stem from publishing a saucy, erotica e-book?
E.L. James' now infamous, best-selling Twilight fan fiction turned erotic realistic fiction 50 Shades of Grey has heated up dialogue concerning women and sexuality, has slightly engorged local economies, gets people reading, and is now stimulating the formerly struggling erotica industry!
In the aftermath of 50 Shades hysteria, Romance-novel publisher Mills and Boone have debuted the Twelve Shades of Surrender series, a selection of stories in e-book form covering a range of steamy, scandalous adventures.

A new iPad app called "Baby Panda's New Home" has released on the App Store.
It's a biography of the baby panda, Zhen Zhen, from the San Diego Zoo.
It is an interactive e-book that reads to you as you read along Zhen Zhen's journey from birth, to first doctors visits all the way to her eventual relocation into the wild of China.
A San Diego Zoo rep said:
"The baby pandas at the San Diego Zoo have generated tremendous interest with the public.
Creating an app that shares these adorable bears with kids in an educational way helps us to continue our mission of conserving these animals.”
Carrying around a baby panda in your iPad sounds pretty cool.
Though carrying around a real baby panda in one of those cute little dog handbags would be cooler. LOLz.
