This Charity Bookstore Is Begging People To Stop Donating Their Copies Of ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’

25 March 2016

From Distractify:

It seems like there’s no end to the pain Fifty Shades Of Grey can inflict — intentional or otherwise. First, there was the dismal trilogy, followed shortly thereafter by the abomination of a movie starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan. And now, the number of people attempting to get rid of their Fifty Shades books is putting significant strain on a charity bookshop.

Come on, Fifty Shades — haven’t you done enough??

Goldstone Books, an Oxfam charity book shop in Swansea, South Wales, has officially put their foot down when it comes to EL James’ best-seller. Due to the ridiculously high number of donations, the shop will no longer accept copies of Fifty Shades Of Grey. 

“We appreciate all the donations — but less Fifty Shades and more sixties and seventies vinyl would be good,” employee Phil Broadhurst told the Mirror. “There are a lot of people obsessed by Fifty Shades of Grey, we get people bringing in new copies all the time. Enough is enough.”

The shop has “literally hundreds” of copies of the novel, and the employees have taken it upon themselves to create an actual Fifty Shades Of Grey fort.

  1. I just want to see a picture of the book fort.

  2. The charity shop needs to use the safe word.

  3. The fort picture was worth it. Someday I’d like to build a large room sized fort using books. I made so many as a kid with TV tables, couches, coffee tables, and blankets. I miss it.

  4. And don’t forget it tested positive for herpes.

    I hope they’re taking the proper precautions in handling all those copies!

  5. Ugh, what a waste of paper! 🙁
