Twelve notable books for lit-loving fathers

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog Nicole Hill tagged twelve books to give your dad this year.

One title on the list:
One Summer: America, 1927, by Bill Bryson

If your dad loves to regale you with uphill-both-ways tales of his youth—and even if he doesn’t, really—he’ll be enamored with the latest from the avuncular Bryson. He brings his light, charming touch to a nonfiction account of one eventful summer in American history. The presence of Lindbergh, Coolidge, and the Babe provide ample opportunities for historical wisecracks, tangents, insights, and antics.
