"Fifty Shades of Grey" has been donated to a charity bookshop in Britain by so many people that associates built a small fortress using the tomes as bricks.

"We appreciate all the donations — but less 'Fifty Shades' and more '60s and '70s vinyl would be good," Phil Broadhurst, an employee at an Oxfam shop in Swansea, South Wales, told The Mirror U.K.

"Please — no more," he continued, adding that "literally hundreds" of books from the erotic trilogy have made the shop their "retirement home."

Because the shop is running out of space for the bestselling series, they've begun to hand over copies to recycling firm Goldstone Books.

"There are a lot of people obsessed by 'Fifty Shades of Grey,' we get people bringing in new copies coming in all the time. Enough is enough," he concluded.

To prove the almost comic absurdity of the deluge, handlers decided to build a fort made of the books, and welcomed photographers to spread the word far and wide.

Unfortunately for employees, the plague of books is likely to continue for the foreseeable future, as the second movie based on the books, "Fifty Shades Darker," featuring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, is set for release next year.

In total, "Fifty Shades of Grey" and its sequels have sold more than 125 million copies worldwide.
