Fifty Shades Of Grey has become the number one best-selling Kindle book of all time at Amazon.co.uk, it was revealed today. Despite the trilogy only being published in March this year, the racy international best-sellers - dubbed 'mummy porn' - have sold over one million copies in the online store's Kindle department, while author EL James has become the bestselling author of the year on the site as a whole.

Pretty funny that a book I’ve never heard of is the best seller of all time.
You’ve never heard of the Bible?
Best seller of Amazon United Kingdom Kindle
sort of subset of "all time"
Best selling KINDLE book. Not best selling book.
Best selling Kindle book, on Amazon, in the UK.
Biggest frog, across the pond...
Whoops I missed that....you are right.. but just give it time to be the US #1 Kindle seller.
JUST IN TIME.....
First saw it last week when looking up “The Amateur” and it was “surprisingly” a H*U*G*E bestseller.
Can’t have people talking about TWO big conservative best-sellers coming out.....
—Youve never heard of the Bible?—
I thought of that when I posted. But I think you know what I meant. ;-)
its soft core porn IIRC
written by a woman for women
kinda like the “romance” novels of the 80’s and 90’s
Exactly. Not best selling all time.
Don’t ask me what caused me to type “of all time”. I meant “for such a long time”.
(Before the FR fanfic squad arrives to pillory me, I am a former author of SF fanfic. All of it was self-published in dead-tree APAs long before Al Gore invented the Internet. Good thing, too. They were rank awful personified.)
For most of my five-day free run, EFAD was right behind this trashy soft-porn novel Divorced, Desperate and Delicious, AKA "DDD."
So I even downloaded it (it was free) to see if it was any good. It's just trash, loosely plotted to give the thirtyish slut protanotist a chance to screw a series of men, while pursuing some crime case I can't even recall. I read about a third of it and deleted it.
Of course! But there was simply no way I could pass up a little bit of teasing like that.
Yeah, I did a quick google for a review. Apparently it’s porn. I don’t mean “bodice ripper” porn. I mean “Penthouse chronicles” (IIRC) porn.
This is sort of the equivalent of a modern “Deep Throat”, but mainly for women.
A lot of reviewers got tired of Ana (the main character) repeating “holy crap”.
"Mummy Porn" sounds like Bill Clinton.
The plot traces the relationship between recent college graduate Anastasia Steele and manipulative billionaire Christian Grey. Steele is required by Grey to sign a contract allowing him complete control over her life as well as a non-disclosure agreement, something that he has required from all of his previous submissives. Upon learning that she is a virgin, Grey agrees to have sex with her in order to prepare her for later encounters, fully intending that the contract would be signed. As she gets to know him, she learns that his sexual tastes involve bondage, domination, and sadism, and that childhood abuse left him a deeply damaged individual. In order to be his partner, she agrees to experiment with BDSM, but she struggles to reconcile who she is (a virgin who has never previously had a boyfriend) with whom Christian wants her to be, his submissive and a to-do-with-as-he-pleases partner in his "Red Room of Pain".There are a lot of women out there with domination fantasies.
I’m waiting for the cost to come down..
love my Kindle...
