Bedside Reading® Celebrates Dads at Partner Hamptons Hotels


This post was written by a member of the community.

A gift for dad that can last more than an afternoon and that makes everyone happy? This is the collection of free bedside Father’s Day books placed near the bedside of popular Hamptons hotels. Thrillers, memoirs, novels and children’s books are there for dads to have fun (and share as a family!). And via a special QR code found in a gift card in each bag, visitors can access additional books through the on download program including two business books. Currently celebrating its 20th season of providing the best beach readings in the Hamptons, Bedside Reading continues to be a ‘must have’ facility for its local hotel partners providing beach goers looking for beach reading.

“Our Father’s Day collection is a great gift for Dad and the whole family,” said Jane Ubell-Meyer, Founder of Bedside Reading. “I remember spending summers in Southampton and besides wading the bay for clams, books were my favorite pastime, and still are!”
