About this category

I wonder what percentage of Lovereading families remember Mother’s Day but fail to register Father’s Day! Apparently, the national figure is quite high.

We at Lovereading are here to change all that and have pulled together a number of fabulous titles, both fiction and non-fiction, which Dads everywhere are sure to enjoy over the summer months.


So have a look at our selection, read an extract before deciding whether to buy or not and make sure Dad doesn’t miss out again this year.
