Fifty Shades of Wussies

You know, my sister’s the one who turned me on to Fifty Shades of Grey.  She said all her friends were hiding in the basement reading it.  Two and a half books later for me and a digital only book turned floor to ceiling in print at Barnes and Noble, I’m sort of wondering if […] [Read More]
