'Fifty Shades of Grey' tops the Washington Post list of bestsellers

By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

E.L. James’ hit erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey has topped The Washington Post’s bestsellers list of 2012.

The list includes the likes of Life of Pi, Fifty Shades Darker, the sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey, The Paris Wife and The Hobbit rounding out the top five.

Wolf Hall, Fifty Shades Darker and Stephen Chbosky’s novel-turned film The Perks of Being a Wallflower sits at number eight.

The Perfect Hope and Private London, by James Patterson take positions nine and ten respectively.

This year’s top Post pick has created a quite the wave. Not only is the book being turned into a film adaptation, with much speculation as to who will play the sexual Christian Grey, the books have also inspired a college course, Gather.com reports.

This far the film has not assigned official roles to Grey or Anastasia Steel, but Kelly Marcel is slated to write the screenplay. Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti are slated produce.
