A few days ago a patron called the library in great need of a book. She was elderly and really wanted me to look up a specific title. The title was The Bondage Breaker.
I fought hard to not snicker at that. Ah, I thought, another older woman who needs her kinky book fix. I love the elderly women who read such books, it gives me hope for becoming old. However, when I researched the book more I found that it was not a romance novel. . .
IT WAS A CHRISTIAN SELF HELP NOVEL!
Mardel's sells it. That shocked me. What a stupid title for a Christian book, it screams slave whore being freed by a Scottish Highlander or something.
I did thoroughly enjoy spending a good deal of the rest of that afternoon thinking up scenarios for what the true plot of the story might be. Some S & M was definitely included.
