Books That Are About Fathers, For Fathers, This Fathers Day

It’s Father’s Day tomorrow. And the thing about Dads is that they honestly don’t really care about the gifts and the surprises. They’ll probably be more interested in the cricket match that’s happening tomorrow. But, instead of presenting your Dad with expensive presents, or taking them out, you could just order these books online or buy them from a bookstore nearby, or just pass the information along because fathers are information junkies, like that. After all, which Dad wouldn’t want to know about the books written by and about fathers, talking about fathers, on Father’s Day, right?
