We know very well that we are living in the technology era, but that era is going so advance that a hotel in United Kingdom replaces Bibles with Kindles. British publication Telegraph reports that Hotel Indigo in Newcastle replaced Bible with Kindles in all of its 148 rooms. The hotel also allowed its guests to download a copy of any other religious text, but have to the value of £5 or less during their stay.

Guests can also purchased regular fiction books, the bill of which will be added to guests’ bills. The policy is currently on a trial basis, until July 16, after which decision to be made whether to keep the service or move forward. If accepted, the hotel will roll out the service in its all 44 hotels around the world.

“In the 18th Century, Newcastle was one of the largest print centres in Britain and we’re in Grainger Town, close to the Literary and Philosophical Society,” Adam Munday, the hotel’s general manager. “We wanted to reflect this literary history in a very contemporary way, so are offering guests the use of cutting-edge Kindles pre-loaded with The Bible, instead of the more traditional hardcopy Gideon’s Bible that they would expect to find in a hotel.”
