Salman Rushdie to Select the Books at The Standard New York
When it comes to hotel trends, the Standard New York always has to do things a little differently.
While many hotels offer guests a carefully curated selection of books to read during their stay, the Standard has employed Satanic Verses author Salman Rushdie to choose the Standard reading material. The NY Post reports:
According to sources, the "Satanic Verses" author is in the process of selecting 10 "American classics," which will be in Standard rooms during the PEN World Voices Festival April 25 to May 1.
Boo. All that work and they will only be in the rooms for a week? This is actually one of the few cool amenities that the Standard has offered gratis to guests, no special membership required. Maybe they can bring in another author next month? Just not Snooki, please.
