If you’re staying at the Damson Dene Hotel in the Lake District of England, and you open the bedside table, you won’t be finding the Bible there. What will you see?
Yes, the lady-porn that has been sweeping the nation is going to be in every hotel room!
Here’s what hotel-owner Jonathan Denby has to say:
Tonight millions of women will be curling up in bed with a good book and you can bet your life it won’t be the Bible. More likely than not it will be ‘Fifty Shades of Grey.’ I haven’t read the book yet — I’m not in the target audience — but I’m told it’s a ripping good yarn and everyone who’s in the target audience loves it. This made me wonder about the sense of providing a book, the Gideon Bible which no-one reads, and many dislike, in the bedside cabinet of our hotel bedrooms, instead of a book which everyone wants to read, such as ‘Fifty Shades of Grey.’
In this secular age it seems distinctly odd that anyone would expect to find a religious book in a hotel bedroom.
First of all, I really like this Denby guy, and second, he has a fair point! Why not put something in the drawers that might help people… umm… enhance their hotel experience?
I love this idea! If it were me, I would put Harry Potter in there.
Any other suggestions?
