Steamy Romance Novel Fast Facts

As “Fifty Shades Freed” hits store shelves and online movie rental services, there are a few interesting facts about the movie series that you might not realize until you watch at least the first movie. One of the biggest fans of “Fifty Shades of Grey” is Oprah Winfrey. She has seen the movies and read all of the books, enjoying the steamy action that takes place in some parts. Several clothing lines now offer everything from shirts to baby clothes that feature phrases related to the movie, such as spending a night with Mr. Grey. Although some religious groups don’t approve of the storyline and the activities that take place in the books and in the movies, the Damson Dene Hotel decided to at least temporarily replace the Bibles in the drawers of the rooms with “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Over 100 million copies of the first book in the series have been sold, which is more than the Harry Potter Deathly Hallows books. After the first movie was released in theaters and the first book was released on store shelves, odd items started flying off of store shelves. These items include tape, cable ties, and other bondage items as couples wanted to try some of the experiences in the movie for themselves.
