Virgin Atlantic Pops Their Audiobook Cherry
You may know that the book Fifty Shades of Grey has sold over 10 million copies and continues to sit at the top of the best sellers list. You may also know that the book is actually Twilight fan fiction, thought the storyline focuses on a virgin who makes an "arrangement" with a wealthy man, an arrangement that involves kinky sex.
Now, what you probably don't know is that there's a way to read the book without having the buy it, without having to walk around carrying the obvious cover and without having to take time out of your day.
"Read" it on a Virgin Altantic flight, as Sir Richard Branson's decidedly non-virginal airline is now stocking the audiobook as part of their JAM in-flight entertainment. It won't be the only one, either; audiobooks are newest feature of the system.
The only big problem? iTunes shows the audiobook as coming in at 20 hours. It's going to take you more than a roundtrip between NY and London. Between LAX and London will get you almost there. Better book a connection through to Asia if you want to clear the novel in one trip.
