We’ve talked about it before, even had a full out heated discussion about it, but the Hotel Indigo Newcastle has actually thought about changing the way they do the in-room bible. No, not another hotel changing it to 50 Shades of Grey, but utilizing some progressive thinking about what we think is common place.

When the hotel opened this past June it quickly replaced all bibles in their 148 rooms with Kindles loaded with the religious text. Since our previous discussions have resulted in the recommendation to put more than one faith’s main book, guests will have the opportunity to upload the Bible, Quran, Torah, or The Book of Mormon. In fact, any religious writing is available as long as it's on Amazon and under 5 GBP ($8). Then again, if you aren't particularly spiritual, we're certain you'll be praying at the in-house altar that is MPW Steakhouse Bar & Grill, brainchild of celebrity-chef Marco Pierre White.
