BooksOnBoard’s Top Ten Authors and eBooks This Week in the US

WEBWIRE – Monday, May 14, 2012


The runaway success of the erotic Fifty Shades trilogy by E.L. James has sparked questions regarding BooksOnBoard’s erotica policy—specifically, where readers can find BooksOnBoard’s erotic content.

“Because some erotic content may be offensive to our readers and too easily accessible to children who visit our site, we have an erotic filter on the site that prevents almost all erotica titles from being viewable unless readers authorize it in their accounts,” explained Bob LiVolsi, BooksOnBoard’s founder and CEO. “Without an account, our visitors are unable to see erotica. However, once they have registered an account, they can check off the ’Show Erotic Content’ box found in their account profile.”

Readers have been opting in to view erotic content this week, bringing E.L. James’s ebooks onto the Bestselling Romance eBooks lists in both the US and the UK.
