I'm still reading it, I'm about 100 pages in. It's ok so far, a little depressing maybe. I can give you a full review once I'm done

Has anyone read 50 Shades of Grey? what did you think? I´ve read reviews that gave it from 1 to 5 stars so I really don´t know what to think... the plot doesnt seem that interesting though.

Hey guys, does someone here has a goodreads profile? I just made one and it seems like a great place to share our favourite books and reviews.
