Fifty Shades of Grey is the most requested book at Guantanamo Bay. U.S. Congressman Jim Moran made the revelation while touring Camp 7, which holds five men charged with plotting the September 11th attacks.  Moran was quoted as saying, “Rather than the Koran, the book that is requested most by the (detainees) is “Fifty Shades of Gray.”

Journalists are not allowed to visit that  part of the detention camp but can tour the other prisons and the library that provides books, magazines and DVDs to all 166 captives.

During a visit last week, Reuters saw an eclectic mix of books in numerous languages, from religious tomes to Star Trek  novelizations, Agatha Christie mysteries, stress reduction workbooks and the  Greek classic ‘The Odyssey’.

Also on offer is ‘The Hunger Games,’  according to a librarian who goes by the nickname Zorro. ‘We have the movie and the book too,’ he said.

Guantanamo librarians have said in the past that they screen reading material for sexual content, even blacking out photos of scantily clad women in the advertisements in sports magazines.

Fifty Shades of Grey is a 2011 erotic romance novel and is the first installment in the Fifty Shades trilogy.
