Today marks the birthday of one of the most recognizable fictional book characters, Christian Grey. In honor of his birthday, E L James released the fourth book of her erotic series today, called Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian. According to the Daily Mail, this book has been “the top Kindle pre-order of 2015 on Amazon and publisher Vintage Books said demand for the novel has matched the other books which sold more than 125 million copies.”
James announced her plans for the book earlier this month, saying that fans were asking to hear Christian’s side of the story. “See the world of Fifty Shades of Grey anew through the eyes of Christian Grey. In Christian’s own words, and through his thoughts, reflections, and dreams, E L James offers a fresh perspective on the love story that has enthralled millions of readers around the world,” as stated from the book’s description.
The first book of the series is “the all-time bestselling book title on Kindle.” The publishing house had one million copies ready for sale for today’s release. Makes sense considering the three other books have sold more than 125 million copies worldwide.
