    Zooey Deschanel is too smart to come within 10 yards of that shit-pie!!!! You will have to settle for some doe-eyed, brain-dead, vain actress.

    They need to rename it from "mommy porn" to "frigid women porn". If you dont know why read Nancy Fridays My Secret Garden where different types of sexual fantasies are dissected and the psychology behind them explained.

    I have read worst things from news sources and watched in horror far worst things on television. If they ban these books, they should also ban the Viagra and Ciales Erectile Dysfunction commercials from TV.

    @50 shades of waiting. I am sorry you didn't get your request, that certainly was the wrong way for them to handle it. My public library didn't even order it, yet they are painted with the same brush by RH and I just don't see it as censorship when one chooses not to buy something.
    I am more angry over the publishing houses denying my library the right to purchase e-books. There are tons of titles I would love to read through my library on my e-reader but these companies are restricting the titles from libraries. Where is the public out cry there?

    @Merri - Brevard County DID buy the book... and then pulled it. I was on the waiting list forever and just before I got to the top, BANHAMMER.

    "These events resonate as unfortunately considered decisions, as they withdraw from circulation a book with one of the highest demand curves in recent history."
    You can't withdraw what was never there and the choice to buy a book is not the same as taking away one that had already been in circulation. They decided not to BUY the book.

    In an age where funding for public libraries is being slashed quicker than you can turn a page and many are forced to cut hours, staff or even close their doors,it's not just THIS book that won't make it on many library shelves.
    Is Random House in a tither over that?

    Chill out people...CENSORSHIP is what happens when the GOVERNMENT does this. If the libraries banning the books are privately-owned, then get over it. No one can tell Books-a-Million which books to sell for the same reason.
    If the libraries are owned or funded by the Federal government, then one might have a case.
