Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy Has Sold 10 Million Copies

Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James

You women love that mommy porn, huh?

It’s too late to deny it. Wanna know how I know? GalleyCat reports that E.L. James’ erotic Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy has sold a cool, combined total of ten million books (paperbacks, eBooks, and audiobooks) in six short weeks.

SIX WEEKS!

So sayeth Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group president Anthony Chirico:

This is an astonishing number. The sales velocity for Fifty Shades of Grey is unprecedented, with reader demand still growing. BookScan data indicates that the trilogy has captured twenty-five percent of the adult fiction market in recent weeks.

Damn, son. I’m try’na get me a piece of that horny woman market share.

In book sales, people. In book sales. Ha!

  1. I still can’t believe a piece of fanfiction in disguise managed to get so successful. Whatever works for the author, I guess? xD

  2. I must say curiousity got the better of me & I got this book today. I have read the first 3 chapters and am hooked. It’s written in a way that draws you in. It hasn’t moved onto the romping bits yet. Might change my mind if the story line goes & just turns into a rompathon. Well done on 10 million copies. I wish it was my book.
