Fifty Shades of Grey: Why I re-read this series

Fifty Shades of Grey was available for purchase as of May 2011. After that, there was Fifty Shades Darker, Fifty Shades Freed, and (most recently) Grey. Each of these books have been criticized harshly due to its (at times) vapid story-telling, erotic scenes, and incorrectly portraying a BDSM relationship. Fifty Shades of Grey is about a normal, every-day but beautiful woman named Anastasia Steele. One day, she interviews Christian Grey, a handsome and rich CEO. That is when her world changes. Drawn to each other, they continue their journey together, discovering one another in more ways than one. Christian is challenged by his past and his fast-growing feelings for Ana. Ana is confused by her new found sexuality as well as entranced by her first and only boyfriend. They share a lot of firsts together. Their story continues through Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed as they both fight against conflicts and their past to grow together for a better future. Grey is Fifty Shades

It takes strong time management skills and balance. A happy life always requires balance. An efficient life always requires time management. Spending your entire life working allows other parts of it to suffer. Spending your entire life focusing on friends can allow your financial aspect to suffer. Therefore, it takes balance. Finding balance is hard. It is more difficult than you would probably think. So how does this relate to my tweet? The only response I received: &qu
