Many of those, including “Wild,” “Gone Girl,” “American Sniper,” “Unbroken” and the “Fifty Shades of Grey” trilogy — all three titles of which hit the […] more »

With a hotly anticipated film adaptation of the E.L. James bestseller ready to hit theaters this Valentine’s Day, two titles in the “Fifty Shades of Grey” trilogy return to the E-Book Best-Seller List. The eponymous first book of the series as well as its third installment, “Fifty Shades Freed,” slide into the No. 18 and No. 21 spots, respectively. If […] more »
