Nah, I would rather spend my time reading real literature ;)
Lol :D but maybe you should try, although there are some sex moments, the way the writer build up the character's dark past is really good, that what I like the most in that story and plus the sex scenes come only in the first book I would say after that she doesn't write it in detail :)

I'm not too concerned anout the sex scenes, I guess I just don't like the overall representation of men/women in the series plus I think the writing style lacks eloquence...
But maybe I'll try it, just to say I read it :D

Oh I see what you mean, I guess I just assumed that it's the sex scene since most people don't read because of that;p but it's true the book could been better but I don't search for perfection. :) I hope you enjoy the book :D
But yea..
If you were recommend a book, which one would it be ?:)

That's a tough question, since I love reading so much that I cannot decide on just one book :D
I do read lots of classics like Schiller, Lessing, Büchner and Goethe (since I am German I guess :D ), but also "English" classics such as Jane Austen, Oscar Wilde etc. I tend to read books in their original language, because sometimes translations are missing something...
When I was a child, I LOVED Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes and Lord of the Rings (I still do) <3
I guess I will read anything as long it is not some corny Nicholas Sparks novel (or worse :D)
What about you? Do you also speak multiple languages? And if yes, do you "use" them to read books in their original form?

Waow you read a lot, that's really cool.:D
Well me, I'm French and I can speak three languages including French and English, unfortunately I cannot read in my third language. My passion for book only started recently so I didn't read book as much as you did and don't have a list as outstanding as your;). My favourite books are thriller, suspense anything that has kind of have a dark story, I do read others like humour, romance but they more for a quick pass-time. :)

Yeaah, another one speaking more than two languages! :D
What is you third language?
I speak German (obviously), English, French, Spanisch and Japanese! Although I have been learning Japanese for 3 years now, it is difficult to read Japanese books because of all the Kanji (Chinese characters) :(
Are you from France? If so, nous pouvons parler en francais si tu as envie ;)

Nice! I wish I can read or even speak fluently in a different language.

They teach as all the "bad" words!
Anyway, I have not read 50 shades of gray...it does sound interesting.

I still hope I can improve my French so gets as good as my english!
Maybe I should start reading more French books...how did you learn English? I was on a student exchange once (south France), but none of the students could speak English (or German) very well :'D
