In Writing

Oh my god oh my god oh my god, people.  It is not often that I want to send you off to read someone else’s words.  I want you all to myself, but today I must put your needs ahead of my own.

Because I have quite possibly found one of the funniest things I’ve ever read.

A writer for Buzzfeed read the latest “50 Shades” novel and live tweeted about it.  Then he wrote the snarkiest article I’ve seen in a long time.  Delish.

Here’s the thing: I am not one to shame people for their taste in reading.  I have read plenty of “trash” in my day.  (Also, I watch all the Real Housewives franchises, so I have permanently forfeited the moral high ground).  And I am not one to hate on writers for runaway literary success for books that are less than literary.  (Okay, except Snookie.  That really killed me).  And yet I’m sort of perplexed as to why the 50 Shades books are having such success, but not perplexed enough to actually go out and read one.

So, if you’re like me, and want to catch a glimpse without really having to commit to more than clicking on a link, I’ve found the page for you.  He’s got photos of pages in the book, where he’s highlighted the “good” parts.  My favorite?  The one with the heading, “Before we go anywhere, you should know that many of the chapters of the book open like this.”

Hilarious.  Click here.
