Thanks to Barnes & Noble and Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK for sponsoring today's discussion
I'll admit it... I read 50 Shades of Grey. Well, let me step back for a minute.
I purchased a physical copy of the book a few years ago at a second hand book store (yeah yeah yeah, I know, 1984 called and want their way of reading back) and brought the book on a plane with me. I was headed to see my mom in VA Beach. As I was middle-seat sandwiched between a well-dressed older business man, and a younger, probably mid-twenties jock dressed head to toe in an Adidas swishy jump suit... I pulled out my very well worn second hand copy of 50 Shades of Grey and flipped to page one.
I then felt a tap on my shoulder from the business man who said, "My wife read that. She told me allllll about it. Quite the steamy page turner, huh? Don't breathe too loud on us poor guys over here, I see you've read this one a few times before."
He thought he was being hilarious, and was clearly light-heartedly joking with me. Meanwhile, in Sarah land, I then died. Dead. Death. To continue the basic girl series of words... I literally couldn't even.
I awkwardly chuckled as my hand darted, faster than you can say secure your breathing mask, to my copy of the Sky Mall. I never took the book out of my backpack again. Heck, I think it is still in that pink Jansport shoved in the back of my closet.
Ok but, I still wanted to read the book.... in the privacy of my own home....where I don't have to stress over the volume at which I read....
Enter the new Samsung Galaxy Tab® 4 NOOK® which allowed me to read everything from 50 Shades of Grey, to Cosmo Magazine on its 7 inch brilliant HD display... without Snoopy McSnooperson business man having any idea what novel or publication I'm holding in the palm of my hands!
Last night, I started The Fault In Our Stars!
