• Reading ‘Shades of Grey’ for academic credit

    \”The Fifty Shades Trilogy\” is a three-credit,
    300-level American Studies
    course at American University focusing on
    \”Fifty Shades
    of Grey\” — the book that
    inspired conversations about \”mommy porn\” and
    received both praise for
    dragging readers into a fantasy world and
    criticism for cluttering their
    minds with X-rated, erotic scenes.
