50 Shades of Grey

Among the hundreds of thousands of books stacked in Southwest Florida libraries, there's one you definitely won't find – 50 Shades of Grey.

The erotic romance novel featuring bondage, domination and sadism has mesmerized women across the county. Shocking and sultry, Bianca Campoamor cringes at the thought that her mother has read it.

"It's awkward if she's reading it. I don't want my mom reading that kind of stuff," she says.

And neither do some Florida public libraries. Brevard County has already banned the book. Collier and Charlotte counties have also decided not to carry it.
