Happy Fathers Day
Welcome back to Lamon Reviews. Today I have a few options and articles for books for the fathers in your life. I found two articles that I think will help you find the perfect book for Fathers Day.
“Sometimes I think my papa is an accordion. When he looks at me and smiles and breathes, I hear the notes.”The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
When you are thinking about what to get the father in your life for Fathers Day, like all other gifts it’s best to think about who they are and what they would enjoy the most.
If your father is into fishing and outdoor activities, but has never baked a loaf of bread, The World history of baked foods is not a great choice for him.(I don’t think this book exists, but maybe it does.)
On the other hand, if he can make a better tasting quiche than Marie Callender, but has never changed the oil in his auto, perhaps the history of popular machanics is not for him. (This time I think this book does exist.) But the latest Baking book would be.
While looking at the many fabulous books available on the lists today, keep in mind who the book is for. I hope this helps.
“A father is the one friend upon whom we can always rely. In the hour of need, when all else fails, we remember him upon whose knees we sat when children, and who soothed our sorrows; and even though he may be unable to assist us, his mere presence serves to comfort and strengthen us.”File No. 113 by Émile Gaboriau
Oprah daily has an article that has something for every dad. Their list includes books in subjects like golfing, history buffs, Crime fiction readers, non-fiction readers, and books for the handman father that can fix anything.
If you are looking for a book your father would be interested in, check out this article and grab a book for your dad.
“I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren’t trying to teach us. We are formed by little scraps of wisdom”Foucault’s Pendulum by Umberto Eco
Of course I had to include the list from Readers Digest. I only saw two books overlap on several lists and surprisingly it was Hair Love by Matthew A. Cherry.
I watched the animated short and thought it was soo adorable.
Readers Digest has interesting looking books like The Book Itch: Freedom, Truth, & Harlem’s Greatest Bookstore by Vaunda Michaux Nelson, Things My Son Needs to Know About the World by Fredrik Backman, and Pops: Fatherhood in Pieces by Michael Chabon
There are great selections chosen by the Readers Digest team, you can check out their Fathers Day list below.
