If ever there was proof that the publishing industry is a disaster-zone and popular literature is crumbling, Fifty Shades of Grey has now outsold all seven of the Harry Potter novels.
But what happens when it's all said and done, when you've read through all the crappy dialogue and poorly-written sex scenes? Where do they all go then?
To charity shops, of course, like this Oxfam one in England. The charity shop received so many copies of Fifty Shades of Grey that they were actually able to build a giant fort inside their office with the donated copies.
Take a look.

It must smell awful in there, being surrounded by all that shit.
As well as that, it really does say a lot about how much people have been turned off by Fifty Shades of Grey and that the fad is essentially over and done with. The charity shop, located in Swansea, has now refused to handle any copy of Fifty Shades of Grey and now asks for said donations to be either pulped or dumped.
Which, to be honest, is no bad thing. Fifty Shades of Grey was complete and utter shite and we all know it.
