Bedside Reading®, the program that places books by the bedsides in luxury hotels and the Hamptons, celebrates its second anniversary on August 15th by honoring its indie authors and publishers who are placing their books in Bedside Reading’s Hamptons hotels this summer.

As an entrepreneur, founder Jane Ubell-Meyer understands what it means to be independent and the challenges involved to get a business off the ground and to get noticed. “It takes the power of traditional publishers as well as the independents to create a winning program. The authors and publishers who have joined this summer’s program have all published books we feel deserve a round of applause and critical acclaim,” said Ubell-Meyer.
