The list of places where the national bestseller Fifty Shades Of Grey has been banned continues to grow as administrators express concern about the raunchy content.

Libraries in Wisconsin and Georgia are following the lead set by Florida after 17 outposts deemed the book ‘semi-pornographic’.

Fifty Shades of Grey, the first novel in an erotic fiction trilogy by new British writer EL James, has been removed from library shelves in four Florida counties, one Georgia county outside of Atlanta, and  Gwinnett County, Georgia, as well as certain libraries in Wisconsin.

‘It’s quite simple, it doesn’t meet our selection criteria,’ said Cathy Schweinsberg, the library services director in Brevard County speaking to the Palm Beach Post.

Despite this, requests for the book have stormed the libraries with a few copies still checked out to patrons – with the staff eagerly awaiting their return, according to county spokesman Don Walker speaking to the New York Daily News.
‘Nobody asked us to take it off the shelves, but we bought some copies before we realized what it was. We looked at it, because it’s been called “mommy porn” and “soft porn.” We don’t collect porn,’ Mrs Schweinsberg said.
