NEW YORK: E.L. James' new book "Grey Cheap Air Max Clearance ," the latest novel in the erotic "Fifty Shades of Grey" series, has sold more than 1.1 million copies in trade, paperback, ebook and audio editions in just four days, its publisher said on Monday.
To meet demand for the novel that retells the first book through the eyes of its billionaire protagonist Christian Grey, Vintage Books is printing a million more copies.
"This is an astonishing number of books to sell over a weekend and speaks to the engagement and passion readers have for the 'Fifty Shades' books Cheap Air Max Online ," said publisher Anne Messitte, of the imprint of Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group. "Christian's side of the story is proving to be irresistible."
"Grey" had been the highest Kindle pre-order of this year on Amazon and shot straight to No. 1 on the online bestseller lists when it was published last Thursday. The novel was also released in Britain and in a Spanish-language version.
The "Fifty Shades of Grey" trilogy sold more than 125 million copies worldwide and was published in 52 languages.
James announced the publication of the book on social media on June 1 in one of the best-kept secrets in publishing. She said she was prompted to write it by fans who wanted to know Grey's take on his relationship with college student Anastasia Steele, whom he introduces to kinky sex, sadomasochism and bondage.
Reviews for "Grey" have been mixed, with the Washington Post newspaper saying it is "dark and unrelenting and far too serious, like Mr. Grey."
Britain's Daily Mail newspaper said James reproduces all the tediously same encounters from the first book.
"With crafty economy of effort Cheap Air Max Wholesale , Ms James has simply shadowed the whole plot of Book One, reproducing the clunky polystyrene dialogue word for word, and inserting italicized thoughts by Christian himself," it said.
But Adrian Liang, senior book editor at Amazon, believes James rose to the challenge.
"Is 'Grey' a book I’d recommend to readers who disliked Fifty Shades? No Cheap Air Max Black , probably not. But for those who enjoyed 'Fifty Shades of Grey' or had mixed feelings about the book, 'Grey' is a confident and complex retelling that makes the overall story richer," she added in a review on the retail site.
"Fifty Shades of Grey" was turned into an R-rated film starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson by Comcast Corp-owned Universal Pictures, and has grossed more than US$500 million at the global box office since its February release.
A once-vacant city block at the northern edge of Yale University now teems with exotic herbs and vegetables, tended carefully by a community of graying people from China who are here to look after grandchildren as their own children cultivate careers at the Ivy League school.
In the trellis-filled garden, a patchwork of small lots that are passed from family to family Cheap Air Max Shoes , they find friends, a routine for daily life in new surroundings and familiar vegetables that are fresher than anything they find in local markets.

"The sun is shining. I'm sweating. It's good," said 63-year-old Zhang Zaixian, of Beijing, who was watering chives one day as her grandson attended preschool. "I am happy."
The urban garden began taking shape a decade ago, a product of the expatriate community that has sprouted along with soaring numbers of students from China.
About a quarter of all international students at Yale come from China Cheap Air Max , which has become the biggest source country by far for international students in the United States. Yale, which in 1854 graduated the first Chinese person to earn a degree from a U.S. college, had 680 international scholars, 516 graduate students and 58 undergraduates from China last year.
The gardeners come from a mix of urban and rural areas and abide by a few unwritten rules. Fertilizer is allowed, but pesticides are forbidden. Remove watering cans and clean up in the fall. Find another family to work your patch when you leave New Haven.
Zhang, whose daughter earned a Ph.D. in China before coming to do research at the Yale School of Medicine Cheap Nike Air Max Womens , said she had never done any gardening at home in China's capital, where she had a career keeping statistics for industry and the navy. Zhang's health had been waning before she first came to Connecticut, in 2009, but she said tending to plants each day under smog-free skies has made her feel renewed.
The garden succeeds, she said, because the gardeners belong to an older generation that has patience.
"Young people don't want to do the labor Cheap Nike Air Max Clearance ," she said.
All the plants are edible. They include varieties of beans, scallions, tomatoes and cilantro that they eat or use to season dumplings and other dishes.
The produce, grown from seeds found in New York City's Chinatown and some local Asian markets, is shared with other Chinese families that live in the complex of two-story apartment buildings across the street from the garden — even if they choose not to do gardening themselves.
"I wasn't farming anymore in China. Why should I do farming here?" said Wang Lunji, 65 Cheap Nike Air Max Online , from Anhui province in eastern China, where the land he once worked was plowed under for development. Wang, whose son studies biology at Yale, said he nevertheless appreciates the vegetables shared by his neighbors.
Yale owns the land, which had been overgrown before a few families started the planting, and Yale grounds crews hav
