Whether your guy is an occasional reader or keeps his nose buried in a book, he’s going to love this mix of action, intrigue, and inspirational stories. The our fav local bookseller, Lady Smith of The Snail on the Wall suggests these in her curated Father’s Day Book Bundle:

Lady also suggests any of these other compelling books that would make great gifts too.
