Celebrate Father's Day with the Perfect Book

Father's Day is right around the corner; in fact, it's Sunday, June 20, 2010! If you haven't already purchased a card and a gift for dear ol' dad, there's still plenty of time. Why not consider the gift of a book or two. You can make the selection yourself or make plans with your dad to visit his favorite bookstore and let him choose.

And remember, Father's Day is not only a day for celebrating dads and fatherhood, it's also a day for celebrating all the special men in your life like a husband, step dad, brother, grandfather, godfather, uncle, cousin, or father-in-law. Celebrate each one with the gift of a book.
