Sorry, but I think you're making this up.

Only way to know for sure is to ask the library staff. One phone call can fix that. Or it'd probably be on the library's website :)

I'm pretty sure he's making it up because you can't buy it at WalMart, and the cost at Rolla Books is like $15.95.

nope, sams club has it for 9.95. He's not making it up either. just checked for my wife actually and they told me the library board of directors decided not to allow the library to carry this book. so, you're only chance is to buy the book or find a library somewhere else.

Good. I hope they do ban it. It is a horrible book.. And everyone is sooo obsessed with it. I think its disturbing how many women are in "love" with this guy. I read it til about 3/4 the way through and quit because I was so angry that everyone thought this is such a great love story. Or sex story or whatever. That is not what a relationship should be about! Or even sex! More like an abusive relationship!

Just because you think it's a horrible book dosnt mean other people do not enjoy it. Nobody made you read the book, and you probably new what it was about before you started. What is the point of banning books? Who are you protecting? There are probably dozens if not hundreds of books in the library that are overtly sexual or have graphic sexual content. This one is just a popular one right now. Also who are you to say what a relationship is all about!? If two consenting adults are into those kinds of things. Or this is how the show love to each other than so what it's none of your business. To mee it just shows that the people on the library board are a little on the small minded side. I would like to see what other books they have banned.

I read all 3 books! Very good! If you read them all before being so judgmental than maybe you would understand what all the hype is about!!

Never said they were. You can't see the forest through the trees professor. Think real hard and you might understand the point I was trying to make.

You would be easier to understand if you knew the difference between "your" and "you're." You'd also be easier to understand if you would review some of the basic rules of grammar. Commas are your friend.

So, what the hell point WERE you trying to make?

Typing on a small keyboard I take liberties with grammar. It shows how much of a freakin (excuse my hillbilly uneducated slang) dumbass you are to attack the errors in typing than to understand the issue. Censoring anything in which one already has a choice to censor on their own is not conducive of promoting a free society. If the library uses public funds they should be forced to put the book back on the shelves. If the library is privately funded then they can do as they please. If you support this type of censorship then you're no better than the above fore mentioned dictators (or in your case dick tator).

Your right, I will sit here on my front porch with a beer, take a deep breath, and smell the dog food smell that permeates Rolla.
