Father’s Day Books to Read with Your Dad at Book Club

Father’s Day is just around the corner; on Sunday, we will honor dads everywhere. Instead of the same-old-same-old, grab a few books to read with your dad and prepare yourself for some literary debates. There is no better way to spend Father’s Day than by discussing a book over a smoking grill at the family barbeque. 

Taking time to read with someone you love helps draw you closer together. Remember how excited you were as a child when your father read a book at bedtime? You can relive that experience with your dear old dad. Just think of all the books you can read together. 

There is no limit to the books you and your dad can enjoy. Here are a few recommendations you can spend hours discussing.
