Sunday, June 21, Father’s Day, is fast approaching!

Good dads, bad dads, happy dads, sad dads,

granddads, stepdads, whoever is a dad

Get them a book or t-shirt or gift certificate or journal at Chevalier’s Books. A card would be good too. We love to recommend books, just ask any of the store’s booksellers.

In the meantime, a few ideas:

My Struggle by Karl Ove Knausgaard, Volumes 1-4.

Just brilliant and you won’t have to buy dad another present for a long, long time.
