Simon & Schuster and Hotels.com are joining forces to give away S&S titles to travelers, and enhance discoverability of the publisher's books. Through the partnership, Hotels.com customers who book a minimum two-night stay in select U.S. hotels will have the opportunity to download one of seven free e-books published by S&S.
Titles at launch include Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King; The Glass Rainbow by James Lee Burke, The White Queen by Philippa Gregory; Crazy Love You by Lisa Unger; I am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes, You by Caroline Kepnes; and The Ascendent by Drew Chapman. New titles will be added and rotated within the program periodically. The offering will be serviced through Glose, an interactive social reading platform.
“Business and pleasure travelers spend a great deal of time reading on the road and are an ideal audience with whom to share great new books,” said Liz Perl, executive v-p, chief marketing officer of S&S. “We are excited to join together with Hotels.com to help their vast customer base discover their next great read.”
