I agree that a hospital wouldn't make sense, as they're often distinct buildings. Although in inner city London they do often share a facade with other properties, but they wouldn't fit into the size a regular modular building is.
However, I don't think there's that much logic to it. The Lego designers just do what they think looks good!
But I think the idea of a medical centre / clinic / general practice surgery would be a good one.
Include a waiting room and reception/office, consulting room, minor surgery unit and a pharmacy. Could all fit nicely in to one building and they come in all ages and styles of building, so depending on of its purpose build, they could quite go to town in the design.
In my city some are modern, some 1960, style, some converted townhouses, even a one is in a converted church, which would be a way to get that style of architecture in without actually creating a church.
As for it being a bookstore, they had 10267 listed as a Fairground Free Fall Tower for whatever reason and that turned out to be the Gingerbread House so I wouldn't exactly call them reliable.
Or maybe they just forgot to include de instruction/pictures for an alternative build ;)
In some cases, where space/financial situation is limited, if one is only buying ”interesting” buildings (note: which varies in the eye of each individual lego collector) the city develops in completely different manner. In addition to Lego working hard to design sets that will appeal to most people (since it is a company and needs to profit from the sales) where each set needs to sell, if too many sets in a row dont pique a collectors interest that particular collector will probably be less interested in collecting Lego = not follow whats new = possibly missing out on buying new sets around release day.
I like the modulars the most, the D2C Ninjago sets, many Disney princess and a few Friends sets but am not limited to buying those lines. So Im active in keeping track on when those are released and mostly buy them directly from Lego, while the others will be looked upon with mild interest once released, perhaps bought later on the secondary market. Thus, I tend to become more invested in lines that have kept my interest inbetween sets (overlooking single sets) but if several releases in a row are of no interest to me Ill prioritise the former.

The library is going to be pretty awesome.
4am UK time would be an odd time to reveal it, so maybe it'll be announced beforehand and unveiled there in the brick.
A building! One that can be joined to others!
All will be revealed this week. Keep an eye out on the Brickset home page!
Whats most pathetic is that even if there were a ”traditional relase date” i wouldnt even know what time and according to what time zone. [facepalm]
I hope this was all 'tongue in cheek' irony!?!
