Fifty Shades of Grey Banned From Libraries for Being Too Racy and Poorly WrittenS

The erotica spectacle known as the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy may be a hit with the ladies, but it's not so popular with the libraries. It turns out libraries in several states have pulled the books off their shelves or refused to stock them in the first place because they deem the work "too steamy or too poorly written." Ha. So far libraries in Wisconsin, Georgia, and Florida have refused to offer their patrons a glimpse into the kinky world of mommy porn. Don Walker, a spokesman for Brevard County, Florida, said, "It's semi-pornographic," as an explanation for why the library there bought 19 copies of the book but then pulled them off the shelves after reading reviews about it. But it's not all about the sex, Cay Hohmeister, director of libraries for Leon County, said, "It has not received what we would consider good reviews. It doesn't meet our selection criteria." Well, la dee dah.
