Ellen Degeneres to narrate 50 Shades of Gray??

E.L. James’ blockbuster as audiobook? Laugh your way through Ellen’s video that perfectly illustrates (not!) what we audiobook reviewers call “narrator match.” Just in case you’re wondering, you CAN listen to the real thing: The 50 Shades of Grey audio from Random House is read by Becca Battoe.

    Just finished A Tree Grows in Brooklyn for our bookclub and the ladies suggested this book because it is a phenomenon. Now I know why. Some how I don’t think it is going to compare. And thank you, Ellen, I won’t use the spatula.
