This Sunday (17 June) is Father’s Day. Now what could be a better present for your dad than a book?Hours of enjoyment whether they are e-book enabled or paperback/hardback fans and if well chosen the chance to dive into something new. Here are some of our favourite (tried and tested) dad and grandad favourites.
Bill Bryson – At Home or A Really Short History of Everything. Bill’s easy, laid back writing style lulls you into reading books whose subject matter may seem at first boring. His treatment of astro-physics had our other halves well and truly hooked. With his latest – At Home – he takes everything back to basics – literally!
The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit – by J R. R. Tolkien – with film version of the The Hobbit due out in cinemas over the next few months why not give him the book to read first (if he hasn’t already, and if he has and has children/grandchildren then he can share the tale with them!)
Men’s Cooking Manual – Chris Maillard (Haynes) This is the book that keeps giving, what better present is there?
Spot Loves his Dad – Eric Hill (Warne) – a wonderful book for a pre-schooler or toddler to give to their daddy, and perfect bedtime reading.
