So What’s the Deal with 50 Shades of Grey?

Via on May 8, 2012

So many women I know are going ga-ga over this book.

I decided to buy it to read on the plane last week. Let me just say, it’s not the kind of book you really want to sit and read crammed in between two older gentleman on an airplane.

“What’s that you’re reading there, missy? Oh it’s that book!”

Maybe I should have gotten the e-reader version instead:

About Kate Bartolotta

Kate Bartolotta is the strongest girl in the world. She is the love child of a pirate and a roller derby queen. She hails from the second star to the right. She doesn't know how to behave with all the apples and ibexes. She doesn't suffer from her eight million freckles, she loves them! Like a rolling stone, Kate gathers no moss. Kate loves kale, being barefoot, Dr. Seuss, singing too loudly, gallivanting, palindromes, blackberries and has far too many books for her own good. When she's not writing, you can find her practicing yoga, running in the woods, playing with her kids, devouring a book, planting dandelions, changing the world and doing her dishes. Kate does not play the accordion. She is a massage therapist, writer and a compassionate friend to all. This year Kate aspires to finally give up on learning to knit and will instead spend that time putting a little bit more of her heart on the page. Connect with Kate on Facebook and Twitter
