A few months ago, I wrote about Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades' Fuss ) and declared that I wouldn't be choosing it for any of my retirement home readers, in spite of the fact that it is available in Large Print, unless someone requested it.
Sure enough, today when I dropped in to see what my clients would like, someone did.
"My daughter says that I should read this", said "Hetty" taking out the bit of paper on which she had written the title. "Have you heard of this book?"
I hooted with delight, but I should not have been surprised. "Hetty" is my 84 year old Hunger Games enthusiast. I assured her that I knew the book and asked if she was prepared for a lot of adult content. She coyly replied, "Of course! I am an adult."
I've just checked the library catalogue. There is a large print copy on the Bookmobile that I can pick up for her tomorrow.
I can hardly wait to hear what she thinks of it.
And I wonder if she knows about the forthcoming movie...
