E.L. James continued her U.S. book tour with a stop at Powell's in Portland, Oregon. Eight hundred people showed up and waited all day to have their book signed by E.L. James, the best selling author that changed the face of publishing.
Our correspondent, Tami, a.k.a. @NextstopSF, was on the scene taking pictures and chatting with fans. The lines were so long they snaked inside, outside, through the book shelves and upstairs into a third floor room. Tami was originally told, by store staff, that E.L. James would be signing in the aptly named, "Red Room", but the crowd was so big, they had to move her one floor higher to the "Pearl Room".
Even after waiting in long lines, the fans were happy to be there and happy to pose for photos. The picture below, taken by our correspondent Tami, was used on E.L. James Official Website tonight. That is so exciting!
A huge thanks to @NextStopSF for your great reporting and awesome pictures.

This mother and daughter came out to have their books signed.
They told Tami that mom was actually the one that read the books first and then
convinced her daughter to read it.
Yes, men read Fifty Shades of Grey!
