“Fifty Shades” To Be Released In Hardcover
The Fifty Shades novels will be making their way to hardcover format for the first time in the United States.
On January 29th, Doubleday will be releasing 200,000 copies of each novel in hardcover format for $26.95 a piece. There will also be shrink-wrapped sets of the whole series for $80.85 (a savings of… well, zilch).
The reason for the hardcover releases? “As interest in the Fifty Shades trilogy has grown, readers have been asking for hardcover editions of the books,” says author E.L. James‘ publisher Anne Messitte. “These new hardcovers include unique production elements, making them the ultimate collector’s editions for readers of the trilogy.”
The series has sold over 35 million copies in the United States and 65 million worldwide. The book was also the USA Today’s No. 1 Best-Seller for 20 weeks straight.
