London, Fri, 20 Apr 2012 ANI

London, Apr 20 (ANI): Erotic novel 'Fifty Shades Of Grey', by British novelist E L James, has beaten the sales record for an erotic novel, toecome a number one bestseller in the UK, claims trade magazine The Bookseller.

More than 14,000 copies of the novel have been sold from bookstores around the country, placing it at the top of this week's mass-market fiction chart, the BBC reported.

The book stood at the fourth position in the official top 50 chart this week across all genres.

Earlier this year the novel topped the prestigious 'New York Times' bestseller list on e-book downloads alone.

The success of the book in the US prompted Cornerstone publishers to buy the UK rights to the novel and its two sequels titled, 'Fifty Shades Darker' and 'Fifty Shades Freed', which are released next week.

The trilogy of stories tells the tale of a steamy romance between "successful young entrepreneur", Christian Grey and "unworldly, innocent" literature student, Anastasia Steele.

The book has broken the weekly sales record for an erotic novel surpassing Anais Nin's Delta of Venus, which sold 510 copies in one week in 2004, according to Nielsen BookScan. (ANI)
