Fifty Shades of Grey

So I went to the mall a few days ago and bought some books.

Mostly for kids, who likely won't read them.

Yesterday I started reading. After months.

I was rummaging my bookshelf for books to read and to send my sister, and realised I hadn't completed Fifty Shades of Grey. I wondered 'who wouldn't complete a book full of sex?'

I had started reading it and stopped. Started again after a few months and stopped at the same place. I decided it needed a rest.

At the bookstore recently I noticed the sequels and wondered if I should have been picking them. I settled for a book on grammar.

Now I feel Fifty Shades of Grey and its sisters have a better chance of a cursory reading than The McGraw-Hill Handbook of English Grammar and Usage. I'm not sure how the Economist Style Guide would have fared in the midst of all this.
