Last year, Gideons International distributed more than 84 million printed copies of the Bible around the world to students, hospitals, members of the military and, of course, hotels, where they are a ubiquitous sight in bedside tables.
Starting this month, however, the InterContinental Hotels Group is modernizing that mission at one of its hotels, replacing the paper tomes with electronic versions of the Bible loaded on Kindle e-readers. Each of the 148 rooms at the chain's Hotel Indigo in Newcastle, England, will be outfitted with a Kindle with Wi-Fi. Guests can use the e-ink devices to catch up on scripture, as well as purchase and read any other books available in the Amazon Kindle store....
From what I read from the article they can only download religious articles, and they can't take those choices with them. Something of a bummer if they have Kindle or Kindle friendly device. Apparently the Gideons have no problem with using Kindles, but for them, the tablets are just too expensive to get stolen, and if someone steals a paper Bible, which is far less expensive, it might do the one who did the stealing some good or someone else?
