Don’t have an eReader and can’t wait to read E.L. James’ #1 bestselling eBook? Not a problem anymore! Fifty Shades of Grey hits North American bookshelves in trade paperback form as of today!

The book was first published in 2012 by a small online publisher. “These books have become a word-of-mouth sensation,” said Anne Messitte, publisher of Vintage Books. “There is a palpable sense of excitement about the Fifty Shades trilogy, with demand for the books growing on a daily basis and interest in the author approaching fever pitch.” The New York Times said, “Fifty Shades of Grey, an erotic novel … described as ‘mommy porn’ and Twilight for grownups, has electrified women … who have spread the word like gospel on Facebook pages, at school functions and in spin classes”, while the Toronto Star calls it “Lady Chatterley’s Lover for the Twitter Age … a worldwide literary phenomenon.”

“I’ve heard from so many readers trying to find these books in their local bookshops and libraries,” says author E.L. James, a London-based former TV executive. “It is gratifying to know that they will now be widely available in North America and around the world.”

The story of Anastasia Steele continues in Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, both available in bookstores as of April 17th, 2012.

As for Fifty Shades of Grey, you can find out for yourself what everyone is already raving about by purchasing the book in either Kindle eBook or Paperback form by getting the best price at Amazon.com, Amazon.ca or Amazon.co.uk. (The paperback has yet to be released in the UK.)
