Father’s Day Gifts for the Bookish Dad

Rattling your brain over what to get your Dad for Father’s Day? If he’s an avid reader, there are quite a few options that go just beyond a bookstore gift card.

1.  A New E-reader

If your pops is still rocking an older model of today’s favorite e-readers, upgrade him! They’ve made huge advancements in e-reader technology in just a couple of years. Tell him to put the Kindle with a keyboard down, it’s time for a new model! Amazon, Kobo, and Barnes & Noble offer a variety of e-readers, all touch screens now, and some for under $100. You can get one with a great glow screen for just over $100, or if Dad is okay with backlighting, spring for the Amazon Kindle Fire HD, which is an awesome deal right now at $119 for the 8G version.








2.  A New Title

There are some great books out this month for Dad, including a new suspense/horror novel by Stephen King called Mr. Mercedes, for Freakonomics fans grab Think Like a Freak by Steven Leavitt and Stephen Dubner, or if your Dad is a DIY kinda guy, he might enjoy Made by Dad: 67 Blueprints for Making Cool Stuff by Scott Bedford.












3.  The Paperback Bow-Tie

I guarantee your Dad has nothing in his collection like this Paperback Bow-Tie. It’s up cycled from old books. The seller must have run out, but you could even make Dad his very own if you’re craft enough!
