Epic Hotel Turns the Page

As if sky-high elegance and riverfront views weren't enough to lure you to downtown's Epic Hotel. Now guests get to participate in the inn's in-house reading program. It's called the Epic Page Turner, and, according to the news release, it's "the result of a partnership between the hotel and Hachette Book Group, Sony Digital, and the Early Learning Coalition of Miami-Dade/Monroe."

Here's how it works: A Club Level guest requests a Sony E-Reader, which comes equipped with a current best seller. When the digital bookworm desires something else to read, she or he logs in to the Epic's Virtual Nightstand and orders another. You'll pay the cost of the eBook, of course, and a small download fee, which goes to the Early Learning Coalition. But that's it. There are kids books too and also plans to have authors swing in for the "special-edition series of Epic's daily wine hour program." That's happy hour to you, which with an eBook in hand or an author in tow could potentially become a whole lot happier.
