CHARLOTTE, N.C. —

Avid readers won’t find any copies of a New York Times Bestseller on the shelves of a local library any time soon.

The Gaston-Lincoln Regional Library said it did not order any copies of “Fifty Shades of Grey” because of the book’s erotic content.

The book is the first in a series set in Seattle that traces the relationship between a college graduate and a young businessman. It has garnered national attention because it contains erotic scenes featuring elements of the BDSM lifestyle.

The second and third books in the series are titled “Fifty Shades Darker” and “Fifty Shades Freed” respectively.

Mecklenburg County libraries do offer the book, but there is a waiting list. All of the library system’s copies have been checked out and there is a request list 800 names deep waiting to check out the book.
