Erotica e-books: pleasure and privacy

Happy Monday!

I came across an article (Discreetly Digital, Erotic Novel Sets American Women Abuzz) in the NY Times Books section online, and thought it was topical. This book started as online fan fiction, and morphed into something marketable. More intriguingly, the article got me thinking about the e-book format and erotica. As someone who used to be a bookseller, I’ve seen first-hand how uncomfortable some people are buying erotic novels and other books about sex. The digital age has provided people who cherish their privacy to get the information that they want discreetly. No wonder Fifty Shades of Grey is “no.1 on the New York Times e-book fiction best-seller list for sales in the week ending March 3 and No. 3 position on Amazon’s best-seller list.”

Privately yours,
