50 Shades of Grey: Get the grey without the guy

50 Shades of Grey: Get the grey without the guy

I swore I wouldn’t do it. I would not bow to the pressure. Thanks to the media, I had heard that ’50 Shades of Grey’ was a not-very-secret-secret among groups of women, like stay-at-home-mums, spicing things up in a big way. Although curious (and a little jealous I wasn’t “in” on the secret) I assumed it wasn’t my thing, and would stick to my weekly tabloid magazines, thank you very much!

But then something terrible happened. I got a bit bored on a lunch break and found $10 in my pocket. Was it a sign? Apparently so… I’m currently halfway through the second book (50 Shades Darker) and reading at a rapid pace. I spend many hours having heated discussions about who will play the mysterious Christian Grey in the highly anticipated movie (but will protest big-time if it’s not Ryan Gosling) and have got the whole “reading in public” thing down pat – which includes a folded cover and a discreetly placed palm – so as not to miss out on valuable reading time.

I’m actually scared for when I finish reading number 3, and so I’ve started devising ways to hold onto a little piece of it long after I’ve finished turning the pages. Behold! 50 ways to get a little Grey into your life, even if it doesn’t come in the form of a helicopter-owning, Porsche-giving smooth operator that you can’t look in the eyes and have to call Sir.

Haven’t read it yet? Come out from under that rock and head to Dymocks, Angus & Robertson, Big W, Kmart & Target where you can get it for a steal at about $10-15.
