Trump SoHo® New York Partners with Random House, Inc.
NEW YORK – January 7, 2012 – Trump SoHo® New York and Random House, Inc. announce a partnership to launch “Digital Downtime,” a new complimentary Kindle reading experience for guests staying at the luxury hotel. Through this partnership, Random House curates an e-library of specially selected book excerpts from current and recently published titles of theirs to suit the needs of Trump SoHo New York’s diverse guest profile. The program is an expansion from the hotel’s premier summer e-reading initiative, which enabled Bar d’Eau pool guests to borrow Kindle Touches pre-loaded with books and magazines.
Just in time for the winter season, Digital Downtime offers guests the perfect excuse to take a break from the cold and read something new in the privacy of their room, or fireside in the hotel’s lounge-like lobby. From bestsellers to thrillers, here is what book-enthusiasts staying at Trump SoHo New York can pour over:
Perfect for: Business travelers
Downtime read: The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg
Concierge’s Notes: Learn the secrets to becoming more productive, building better companies and changing habits to be more successful.
Perfect for: Book-to-screen enthusiasts
Downtime reads: Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell and A Game of Thrones Book One (HBO Edition) by George R. R. Martin
Concierge’s Notes: Take a break from reality and read Cloud Atlas, an enigmatic surreal novel-turned-movie starring Tom Hanks, or the fantasy adventure book A Game of Thrones, now an HBO series.
Perfect for: Pop-culture fanatics
Downtime reads: Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling
Concierge’s Notes: Need a laugh? Emmy-nominated writer/actress Mindy Kaling takes a break from her role on THE MINDY PROJECT (FOX) to give the inside scoop on her personal life and view of the world.
Perfect for: Crime solvers
Downtime reads: Criminal by Karin Slaughter and Odd Apocalypse by Dean Koontz
Concierge’s Notes: If the streets of New York City aren’t delivering enough excitement for thrill seekers, a few pages from either of these suspense novels will keep the adrenaline going.
Other e-book excerpts in the Digital Downtime Kindle library include: Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake by Anna Quindlen; Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child by Bob Spitz; Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn; and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. Kindles are rentable for hotel guests only and can be read in guest rooms or in public spaces.
