Fifty Shades hits sales milestone

In Thursday’s Times Arts, Briefly, James’ Fifty Shades of Grey has sold more than 100 million copies worldwide. Other series that have reached 100 million are Harry Potter, Twilight and Nancy Drew. I seem to remember reading Nancy Drew books in one summer, along with marathon games of canasta.

On the same page was an article about dropping lines of dialogue and the names of forgotten actresses in a new play, “The Tribute Artist.”  (They were Mary Astor, Margaret Sullavan, Norma Shearer, Charo, Pearl Bailey and Verdura Jewelry.) My score was perfect except for the jewelry. Dang!
