Fifty Shades of Grey boosts local libraries

“You shrink from leaping on to a media bandwagon, but this seems to be an unexpectedly good cause. The headline-making novel Fifty Shades of Grey is doing what years of good-hearted effort have struggled to achieve: encouraging people who normally have little to do with books, to read them. And to use their local libraries which, for all the occasional bright spot such as York’s new Reading Cafe in Rowntree Park which the Guardian Northerner highlighted yesterday, are at risk from the public spending cuts. Hartlepool is an example. Our colleagues at North News have sent a despatch on how E.L.James’ novel and its successors are bringing borrowers in.”
