Fifty Shades of Grey tops books left behind

Books from the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy have been the ones most left behind in Travelodge hotels, the chain has revealed. It seems the ‘cannot put down’ books can be ditched just as quickly, while other trilogies including the Millennium/The Girl With… series and The Hunger Games. The nine books across all three series made up the top nine of Travelodge’s most left-behind books, with Kathryn Stockett’s The Help completing the top 10. Steve Jobs’ biography came in at number 13, with Stephen Fry’s The Fry Chronicles at number 16 and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy at 20.

“It is interesting to see for the first time ever that our top ten books left behind index is not being dominated by celebrity biographies and chick lit books which it has done in the past,” said Shakila Ahmed from Travelodge.
