Fifty Shades Trilogy

 Okay, I'll admit it. I read  Fifty Shades Trilogy: Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker, Fifty Shades Freed 3-volume Boxed Set. That's right I read all three of them. Once you've read one, most likely you will read all three. It's just that kind of series that pulls you in.

 The first one, Fifty Shades of Grey: Book One of the Fifty Shades Trilogy,
I liked, but man does that guy have some issues. I considered the girl to be a prime target for an abusive relationship. Unlike many people I didn't see this as a hot and steamy romance book. Instead, I thought it was about the beginnings of an abusive relationship. By the end of the book I am relieved. I don't want to give away the ending, so I'll leave it at that.

There are two more books though, so you know that in some sort of fashion the story continues. Book two, Fifty Shades Darker: Book Two of the Fifty Shades Trilogy picks up almost where the last book left off. I must say I thought the entire book was better than the first and it was hot and steamy.

Last the third book, Fifty Shades Freed: Book Three of the Fifty Shades Trilogy, is the best book by far. The story this time picks up several months later, with assorted flash backs to give you an idea of what happened during those months. It is the best written of the three.

Happy reading!

Get a Luggage Scale

Until recently I never needed a luggage scale and I think most people probably did not either. Unfortunately the airliners are getting stricter about luggage all the time. Now days it seems like the airlines always weight your bag and if your bag goes over weight it can cost you a lot. My mom was recently charged $50 and her bag was only 2 pounds over the limit! 

Now I recommend getting one. The cost of a luggage scale is minimal and can save you lots of money when traveling. As you can see they are pretty small and come in lots of variations. They cheapest I found was at Sam's Club the Manual Luggage Scale only $5. The most expensive I found was $30 which is still cheaper than paying the extra baggage fees.
