Nancy French walked into the Books-A-Million store in Spring Hills, Tenn., with her three kids last week and saw the above books display that she found disturbing.
One book promised to make this the most erotic year of your life with 365 sexual positions – one of which was shown in plain, naked view on its cover. Another was about the art of erotic massage, and had a naked woman’s torso with a man’s hand – barely – covering her.
French — who helped Bristol Palin with her memoir — complained to a clerk and was told to “call corporate if you like.”
A little flummoxed, I did just that. Instead of shopping for mother’s day, I dialed the number right there in the store. While I was on hold, another worker explained that these were paid positions on the shelf and that they weren’t allowed to deviate from what corporate dictates.
“I want to have a happy relationship with that bookstore,” she told a Tennessean reporter. “They’ll be like, ‘Here comes the Puritan — let’s make sure only Bibles are being sold.’ But that’s not me at all.”
