    From today, all 148 rooms at the Hotel Indigo will contain a Kindle e-reader pre-loaded with a copy of the Bible. The hotel is claiming to be the first in Britain to offer such a service.
    Guests are also permitted to download a copy of any other religious text – to the value of £5 or less – during their stay. Regular fiction books can also be purchased, with the costs added to guests’ bills.
    The policy is being adopted on a trial basis, until July 16, after which a decision will be made on whether to retain it in Newcastle, or possibly expand it to more of the chain’s 44 hotels around the world.

    That's a really interesting idea. Will allow flexibility for anyone who wants to download the Koran, Apocrypha, etc. How will they prevent theft? According to one of the comments, any guests who abscond with the Kindles will be billed, which makes sense. I would guess they'd also cancel the account tied to the device once the theft is discovered.
