Hit series Fifty Shades of Grey officially sold 100 million copies as of this week.
This milestone puts the book in the same realms as the Twilight and Harry Potter series, both of which sold 120 million and 450 million copies respectively, worldwide. Fifty Shades of Grey sold 45 million copies in the U.S. alone, and has been published in 51 languages across the globe.
Whether you love it or hate it, the trilogy’s success has reached a point that is undeniable, and Twitter seems to unwillingly agree.
Not everyone approves of the book.

While others aim to jump on the bandwagon.
50 Shades of Grey has sold over 100 million copies. Time to get serious with my Finnegan’s Wake erotic fan fiction, I suppose.

But let’s not forget, there are plenty of other books to be read.
When people act superior because they “read” Pro tip – You need to read more than 50 Shades of Grey and Heat magazine to warrant acting smug — Max (@LtSlow) February 28, 2014
And when we say read, we mean read.
Downloaded 50 Shades of Grey so I could listen to it at work. Probably not the smartest idea I’ve ever had. — Peaches† (@ChelcieeAnn) February 28, 2014
But just so you know, we’re still judging.
Charging my phone from the plug by the train door while reading 50 Shades of Grey, I’ve never felt so judged
