Libraries see surge in erotic book borrowing

“The borrowing of erotic fiction from UK public libraries has leapt by 500% over the past 12 months, in what is being called the “Fifty Shades” effect. Last year’s most popular erotic fiction title, Indigo Bloom’s Destined to Feel, was borrowed almost 11,700 times. The surge is attributed to EL James’ bestselling novel, which took third place in the most borrowed titles list.” (via BBC News)

Libraries get steamy between the covers

“Auckland libraries are spicing things up with erotic readings and burlesque dancing in an attempt to lure more members and stay relevant. Last night the libraries launched a week-long series of R18 events and panel discussions on the subject of sex, dubbed Dark Night. It’s the brainchild of Dr Matt Finch, a consultant seconded from the UK by Auckland Libraries to help cook up new ways of getting Aucklanders through the doors of their local branch.” (via NZ Herald News)
