“Summer is the ideal time to unplug and lose yourself in a book!” says Bedside Reading founder Jane Ubell-Meyer.
I couldn’t agree more. And what’s better than discovering a new book or author you haven’t read before, and then absolutely falling in love?
Sometimes this kind of love is fate, sometimes it takes a helping hand. I’ve found both, lucky me, and you can, too. And right here on the East End. As if all the sunshine and summertime fun weren’t enough now that Memorial Day Weekend kicks things off, a gift bag of fabulous reads just may be waiting for you at some of my favorite places—1170 House, Baron’s Cove, Baker House 1650, Hotel Indigo, Hyatt Place East End, Lucille Khornak Gallery, Mill House Inn, Southampton Inn, The Hedges Inn, Topping Rose House and White Fences Water Mill.

“It’s prime-time beach season in the Hamptons,” Ubell-Meyer says, “and if you’re looking for your next summer read, you’re not going to want to miss out on Bedside Reading’s complimentary Hamptons ‘Take Me Home’ tote bag.”
