I was recently reading Esquire’s Father’s Day Gift Guide, and while I was pleased to see a Maine author’s book on the list (“The Footloose American” by Brian Kevin), I couldn’t help but think that Islandport also has some pretty fabulous Father’s Day gifts in our online bookshop.
Two of our newest releases are perfect for Dad. “A Life Lived Outdoors” by George Smith is an enjoyable read. Columnist and outdoor enthusiast George Smith regales readers with stories of his family, favorite travels, and everyday life Maine. Caroline Pradeiro of Downeast Magazine says of the book, “In every selection, Smith’s crisp language is devoid of frills, making for a simple-but-elegant exploration of both state and self.”
For dads who enjoy a good laugh, pick up a copy of “Thoughts of an Average Joe” by Brian Daniels. The book introduces readers to Joe Wight—a middle-aged guy who doesn’t quite meld with modern day society. Joe will introduce readers to life in his small town, his thoughts on getting old, things that confuse him, and more laugh out loud diatribes.
We hope our suggestions help make finding a gift for Dad a little easier this year. And just in time for the holiday, we're offering 20% off these great titles for you! Happy Father’s Day!
