Books left Behind in hotels

This really amused me, according to hotel chain Travelodge, approximately 7,000 copies of E.L. James’s erotic bestseller have been recovered from its rooms since its release earlier this year.The other two volumes in the trilogy – Fifty Shades Freed and Fifty Shades Darker – came fourth and seventh respectively on the firm’s annual “Books Left Behind” list, while titles by Stieg Larsson (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest, The Girl Who Played With Fire) and Suzanne Collin (The Hunger Games, Catching Fire andMockingjay) also featured prominently.The Help, by Kathryn Stockett; Stephen Fry’s The Fry Chronicles; and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, by John Le Carre, made the top 20.

In 2009, the most discarded novel was Katie Price’s autobiography Pushed to the Limit. In 2007, it was Alastair Campbell’s The Blair Years that was most frequently left behind, followed by Piers Morgan’s Don’t You Know Who I Am? Travelodge claims that a total of 21,786 books were found in its 36,500 hotel rooms during the past year. It also noted unusual reading material at several
hotels.Staff at a Scarborough property reportedly recovered a bag of Kama Sutra books belonging to an elderly couple, while a CEO in Peterborough is said to have left behind a suitcase filled with comics. Here are the Top 20 Books left behind in hotels
