What do you do after you've burned through four books and several hundred pages of mom-friendly BDSM? You definitely don't want to display your guiltiest of pleasure reading in your home, so why not give them to those who might not have the ability or means to drop cash on poorly-written smut--into the charity donation bin with you, Anastasia Steele!

Well, at least one charity would really rather you didn't. Oxfam in Swansea, UK, has so many copies of the various Fifty Shades books that they've built a literal fort of the volumes.

We appreciate all your donations, but less Fifty Shades and more Sixties and Seventies vinyl would be good :)

The shop has begged donors to consider maybe tossing something else, anything else, rather than add to the "hundreds" of E.L. James books they've collected. Owner Phil Broadhurst referred to his shop in Metro as a Fifty Shades "retirement home."

Can you donate Some Product to Oxfam? (We are happy to take anything, but 33rpm records would be better than 50 Shades Of Grey books if possible :))

So, UK Christian Grey fans, take notice: Just dump your books straight into the chipper. Or maybe start investing in Kindle editions.
