It has been revealed that charity shops up and down the country just can't give away copies of books by Jeffrey Archer and EL James, despite widespread stories of people stock-piling toilet paper.

Gladys Pippin from the charity shop in Mithering on the Trent, told us, 'With all of these reports of people panic-buying toilet paper, you might have thought that somebody might be taking these books off our hands, but they are still on the shelves, like the bad ideas that they were at the time. Honestly, only sociopaths either buy these books or give them away as presents. It is the trees that I feel the sorriest for, though. They could have been anything but a copy of some shite by Dan Brown.'

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
