From May 23 to May 27, guests staying at select hotels and inns on the East End will find a collection of complimentary books by best-selling authors, fan favorites and new indie authors placed by their bedsides. Titles will include fiction, historical fiction, world history, women’s fiction, thrillers and children’s books from the program’s participating authors, and this year, a new hotel partner, Capri Southampton, has joined the program.

“We are happy to welcome our newest hotel partner, the Capri Southampton, to our Bedside Reading Hamptons family,” said Jane Ubell-Meyer, founder of Bedside Reading. “And we are especially excited to kick off the summer beach reading season with many high-profile and talented indie authors in the program. Readers will have a hard time putting these books down.”

Memorial Day Weekend books are: “Daughter of a Promise” by Jeanne McWilliams Blasberg (fiction); “Max’s War” by Libby Fischer Hellmann (historical fiction); “Age of Revolutions” by Fareed Zakaria (world history); “Night Buddies Go Sky High” by Sands Hetherington (children’s); “Scape Ghost” by Nanci LaGarenne (historical fiction); “The Guest” by Emma Cline (thriller); “The Paris Novel” by Ruth Reichl (women’s fiction).

Founded in 2017, Bedside Reading’s mission is to help authors build their fan base by connecting their books to readers and providing hotel guests the opportunity to unplug and delve into the world of words at some of the world’s most sought-after destinations.

The Hamptons hotel partners are: Mill House Inn, The Maidstone Hotel, Journey East Hampton, and Baker House 1650 in East Hampton; Southampton Inn, 1708 House, Southampton Inn and Capri Southampton in Southampton; and MARRAM in Montauk.
