I betcha that if you like it and ask where to buy it, that the hotel gives you a special link to buy one so they get a kick back. . .much like our link on this board.

I bet the hotel sells you that Kindle, complete with the book you are reading/listening to. They surely have purchased many Ks.

I spent my wedding night at the Algonquin.

Seriously. But I wasn't reading a Kindle. Or anything else for that matter. LOL

This is really cool. I hope Kindles start popping up everywhere.

While the extra publicity for Kindle is really great...my question is why would they load it with an AUDIO BOOK ??

Yeah, I saw that too, and thought, What??

Maybe the person writing the article was just clueless. . . . .no, wait, that couldn't happen. . . .

Now thats what I call a fancy-shmancy hotel? But wouldn't Kindle owners just bring their own?

I must be missing the part about the audio book because it now read

Maybe some one saw their mistake and changed the wording.

Well, we have some friends who -- well, maybe they have more money than brains, as they say. But anyway, they went on a trip and stayed at some deluxe hotel in San Francisco, and the bed was really comfortable. And my friend's husband has a bad back, and he swore it was the best sleep he'd had in ages, and then he found out that he could actually BUY that bed from the hotel. (Well, a new one, not the one in the room.) And they paid over $6000 for the bed and the bed linens (because the wife liked the bed linens so much.)

So if the hotels can sell beds and bedding, why not Kindles? Or flat-screen TV's? Or anything else you happen to have in your hotel room?

We've stayed in Hiltons and Hamptons, much more mid range, and they've had info in the room about the beds -- where to buy them, etc.
