(Newser) – A hotel in Britain is doing away the ubiquitous Bible in the bedside table. Instead, the Hotel Indigo will stick a Kindle in the drawer—preloaded with the Bible, of course. Guests can download a different religious ebook of their choosing at no extra charge, provided it doesn't cost more than $8 or so, reports the Telegraph. They also can use the Kindle to buy other books, whose cost will be tacked on to their hotel bill. If all goes well in a two-week trial period, the chain will expand the plan to its dozens of hotels around the world. (Read more Kindle stories.)
