Finally finished rip-roaring through E. L. James’ “Fifty Shades of Grey” and all her subsequent sequels, or perhaps you just need a little breather?

We've found a book cover that celebrates the book while keeping your reading life private, Christian and Ana-style.

Fifty Shades of Grey ice cream
When Vanilla Isn’t Quite So Vanilla

"Vanilla" launches Ann and Christian’s “relationship,” and to celebrate, we're craving this vanilla-inspired ice cream craft, a lavish treat for snacking in bed. To avoid vanilla's reputation for bland, use a vanilla bean as rich as Christian Grey's bank account.

Grey and "Daily Spiritual Devotions: A Woman's Guide to Rejuvenating the Inner Goddess" by Anastasia Steele.
