I just finished reading Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James. My favorite part: the ending. Ana was incredibly brave, strong, and honest — characteristics in which I admire — and to be completely honest, I felt that it was, singularly, the best written portion of the novel. I promised a review, but I don’t think I can write one for this piece.

Will I read the other two books? Yes, even though this genre is not really my cup of tea as I much prefer historical fiction.

Would I buy this book for a public library? Yes. I am a firm believer that a public library’s purpose is to serve the entire community and there is certainly an interest. In the words of Jo Godwin, “A truly great library contains something in it to offend everyone.”

Now onto Tess of the d’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy…
