Your Reading Suggestions for. . . My Dad?
I know I usually talk about books over at my other blog, but in this case, I need to talk books with a special purpose: I need some recommendations.
My dad's birthday is this month and it's almost always a challenge to come up with a gift he'd enjoy because it's right on the heels of Father's Day. On top of that, he's the kind of guy who is more likely to go get himself what he wants rather than say, "I could really use xyz." (Younger Sister OTOH is excellent at sending those kind of e-mails. I appreciate that tremendously.)
That said, this was something he came right out and asked me about--and I had very little to offer, because it's not my genre.
Are you a fan of historical fiction, or know someone who is that you could ask?
It doesn't have to be a recent title, either: if you enjoyed something or heard someone raving about a particular book, I'll take it. Dad's not locked into a particular time period or anything. Just historical and fictional and enjoyable.
My plan is to give him a gift card to the bookstore with a list of suggested titles.
Please place any suggested titles in the combox. Thanks in advance for helping me out!
