On Monday, E L James' erotic trilogy placed No. 4 on the American Library Association's annual study of "challenged books." Those are works subject to complaints from parents, educators and other members of the public.

No. 1 was a not a story of the bedroom, but the bathroom: Dav Pilkey's "Captain Underpants" books. They're followed by Sherman Alexie's prize-winning "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian" and Jay Asher's "Thirteen Reasons Why."
