Friday Library Updates: The Psychology of Abandonment- Thanks, Good Reads

And....this is awesome: 
"And while E. L. James’ infamous “Fifty Shades of Grey,” has topped bestseller lists around the world, it seems that the 70 million or so who went out to buy the book (and a blank dust jacket to hide their shame with) agreed with the one reader who announced: “I am embarrassed for all of us.”[emphasis added]

  2. Kudos not only to the illuminating stats, but also for them putting this together in a beautiful way!
