A UK hotel has replaced in-room copies of the Bible with the bestselling erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey.
The hotel’s owner Jonathan Denby detailed the reasoning behind his decision in a blog post.
“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,” Denby wrote. “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.”
Denby has insisted that the decision was not an ideological one, but a local vicar has publicly decried the swap and dubbed it “a gimmick”.
