Hot on the heels of the PriceHound controversy, a new investigation has found that online retailers such as Amazon and WHSmith have been selling ebooks about rape and incest, with titles such as Taking My Drunk Daughter and Daddy Came In My Room.

It’s been reported that since the investigation was published, Amazon has begun removing the specific titles mentioned, and the author of “Daddy Came In My Room” has changed the title of her book to “He Came In My Room” to “adhere to the new Amazon search policy.”

Barnes & Noble have released a statement, saying that there were titles available in the NOOK store that were in “violation” of its content policy and was in the process of removing them:

“When there are violations to the content policy that are brought to our attention, either through our internal process or from a customer or external source, we have a rapid response team in place to appropriately categorize or remove the content in accordance with our policy.”

WHSmith reportedly shut down their website in an effort to quickly remove the titles in question.
