(KTVI) – It seems the detainees at Guantanamo Bay like things a little racy when it comes to reading.

A Congressional delegation visiting the secretive Camp Seven last week found out the most popular reading material among Guantanamo detainees is the “50 Shades of Grey” series.

Prison officials say many detainees have read the entire series in English. Prisoners can borrow books and DVDs through the Guantanamo Bay library.

The facility still houses 166 detainees.   According to the Huffington Post, rather than the Quran, high-value detainees preferred the 50 Shades series.  Detainees at Camp Seven are not participating in the hunger strike.
