Poll: Have you read Fifty Shades of Grey?
It seems to be everywhere this summer but have you read the erotic fiction novel? Or are you going to avoid it?


Fifty Shades of Grey, the erotic fiction BDSM-themed book aimed at women, sold more than 60,000 copies in its first two months on sale in Ireland and book shops have been struggling to keep up with the demand. It has inspired parodies, a themed sex festival in Dublin this weekend, and countless imitators.

So today we’re asking if you’ve read – or plan to read – the biggest thing to hit the publishing world since Harry Potter.

Have you read Fifty Shades of Grey?

Poll Results:

No, and I don't plan to (1640)
