Ellen reads '50 Shades of Grey'

At the bookstore I work at, 50 Shades of Grey by E L James is flying off the shelves. FLYING. For those of you not in the know, 50 Shades of Grey started as on-line fan fiction for Twilight diehards. That's right, Anastasia and Christian started out at as Bella and Edward. I don't really get fan fiction, so who am I to judge?

Will I be reading these books? On the one hand, I can't help but roll my eyes when I look at these books on the shelf at work, and on the other, I'm intrigued to read at least the first one just too see what all the fuss is about.

But this, my friends, was too good not to post: Below is a short video of Ellen (yes, Ellen!), "recording" the audio book for 50 Shades of Grey. It is hilarious, priceless and if possible, makes me love Ellen that much more.
