My dad loves reading. No, he doesn’t read much fiction, but he does enjoy history books, how-to guides, and other non-fiction books. Greg and his father are also big readers. Even though they’ve both (more or less) moved from physical books to e-books, I still think it’s important to have a comfortable place to sit and read. Greg and I still have too-many-books-count and need a place to store them and to pull out to study/read.
If there is a man in your life that is a perpetual book lover, this guide is here to give you some ideas for Father’s Day.
I don’t think I’m the only one who has always wanted one of those stylish book carrels from libraries in my own home! You can find them on eBay and through sites like 1stDibs.com. The one above was made in Italy in the 1950s and is made of walnut.
For someone who enjoys travelling, an e-reader might be a good gift choice. We’ve talked about Sony’s e-readers before, but I think that for my next e-reader I’ll go with Kobo—either a Wi-Fi or a Touch. Kobo e-readers are sold at Best Buy, Indigo, Walmart etc. I like that it’s linked to a Canadian book store —and sold at Best Buy (staff discount!).
I really like reading digital books—but I also love digital magazines. Have you tried Zinio? I recommend a gift certificate to Zinio, because they have a great selection of digital magazines for everyone and every interest.
Is your dad a reader? What kinds of gifts would he like?
