Guests at a British luxury hotel may be surprised they won’t find a Gideons Bible waiting for them within their bedside nightstand, but probably not as surprised as they’ll be to find a Kindle there instead.
The high-end Indigo Hotel in the northern city of Newcastle has swapped out the typical King James hardcover in its 148 guest rooms, replacing them all with an Amazon e-reader that comes with the Bible pre-loaded and allows guests to add any other religious texts they want, up to about $8 in download fees.
Guests can also download any secular text they choose during their stay at typical e-book rates, which are then charged to their room.
The Kindles are a pilot program for hotel chain, which hopes to expand their use to the rest of its 44 locations around the world.
