Would you read the fifty shades of grey series and add it to your blog? Even being that it has strong sexual content.
I've had some friends of mine say I should read them. I've been using my reading to blog what I've read to keep track of what books I've already read. If I was to read the books should I write what I think of them on my blog?
I've been going around and around about this for a few weeks now. Not sure of what to do even though my friends say read them.
Any ideas would help me.
Well, I may wait for the hype to go down. I do have to many other books on my list of books to read right now. Thank you all for your advice. It was something I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do. I'll just wait for now to read them.
I wouldn't touch this book with a ten foot poll! I don't review erotica and that is what it is and I have heard it really isn't that great which is why I can't for the life of me see how it got picked up from Random House. To me that just means the big publishers are going down hill.
It really is a matter of preference on what you like to read whether or not you should read this book.
I'm a fan and author of erotic romance, I have no qualms about publishing material on my blog like or about the Fifty Shades series. However, would I recommend that some of my friends read it, no. (I don't recommend my own writing to them) If you want to try it because you are unsure of the content, I agree with Darla start with the free sample!
You could skip the read an simply watch the Ellen DeGeneres video of her "audio book" version. It's hilarious.

Everyone has a lot of great advice. I have always kept my blog and my reading separate, if that makes any sense. I still read whatever I want to read, but I don't necessarily publish it on my blog. I have always maintained a family friendly blog, especially now that my kids both read and contribute to it (and now their friends also read it), so there are some things I will NOT put on it and I make it very clear to any tour sites to which I belong as well as publishers that I do not review erotic literature. I will personally read it if the book is recommended by a friend or it catches my eye, so to speak. I have read the Fifty Shades Trilogy, and while the writing is not the best I have read, I did enjoy the books (but you will not find any mention of it on my blog as I don't particularly want any twelve-year-old friends of my son's looking for them at the library because I mentioned them on my blog - and I'm sure their mothers will appreciate it, too LOL). Read whatever you want, publish whatever you want, and as Darla mentioned, try the sample chapter first to see if you would like it.
