Re: 50 Shades Of Grey phenomenon? Mommy porn outsells Potter and Twili

This is the first time I've heard of this. Apparently these books, starting with 50 Shades of Grey, have become the next book phenomenon and holds the title of fastest-selling novel beating Harry Potter and Twilight. They are now even going to be turned into movies.

I can understand Harry Potter and Twilight getting popular. One has a boy learning he is a wizard and going to a magic school, while the other has a vampire and a teenage girl falling in love with each other.

But this? I glanced at the plot of the first book it looks like it is just romance with a bunch of BDSM sex. Amusingly this series started out as Twilight fan fiction.

How did these books get so huge? Has anyone here read them or seen others reading these books?
Twilight and Stephenie Meyer could have the last laugh though if only because this series was actually a Twilight fanfic published FREE on fanfiction.net a few years ago. Christian and Ana were Edward and Bella.
