The Bedside Reading book selection for July 23.

authorStaff Writer on Jul 20, 2021

Every summer, Bedside Reading distributes tote bags filled with complimentary books for guests staying in hotels and inns around the South Fork. Founded in 2017, Bedside Reading had its beginnings in "Buzz Bags," a gift bag program started by Jane Ubell-Meyer in 2002. The original program eventually evolved to Bedside Reading, which provides bestselling books to inn and B&B guests on the East End and throughout the U.S. Bedside Reading partners with leading publishers as well as many independent publishers to help authors build their fanbase by connecting their books to readers and providing hotel guests the opportunity to unplug and delve into the world of words during their vacation. Newly introduced podcasts, virtual book clubs with partner hotels, and book signings are now available through “on the download,” a program that provides ebooks and audiobooks to hotel partners.

“We love providing these goodies for travelers to the Hamptons looking to really escape," said Ubell-Meyer, founder, Bedside Reading. "Our authors provide a wonderful selection of books so we know every visitor will find a book to their liking!"

Books included in tote bags to be distributed the week of July 23 are: “Winter’s Mourn” by Mary Stone (thriller); “The Very Nice Box” by Eve Gleichman and Laura Blackett (fiction); “Yes, Daddy” by Jonathan Parks-Ramage (fiction/suspense); “Picnic In Someday Valley” by Jodi Thomas (women’s fiction); “The Moon Always Rising” by Alice C. Early (women’s fiction) “Finding Napoleon” by Margaret Rodenberg (historical fiction); “Where Madness Lies’ by Sylvia True (historical fiction); “Why Are There Monkeys? (and other questions for God)” by Brooke Jones (non-fiction).

Books can be found at the following inns: The Baker House 1650, Mill House Inn, The Maidstone Hotel, Southampton Inn, Topping Rose House, Hyatt Place East End, The Preston House & Hotel. New to the program is MARRAM in Montauk and Journey East Hampton. Tote bags of books can also be found at Lucille Khornak Gallery, 2400 Montauk Highway, Bridgehampton.
