Being a dad is a 365-day job. Let this nifty little book help you along the way, with a hilarious dad-related fact for every day of the year. Packed with stories of dad derring-do, this book is the perfect buy for any dad you know, or someone who's about to become one.

Synopsis

365 Reasons to be Proud to be a Dad The Greatest Dad Moments in History by Ian Allen

Discover how 26 August is the anniversary of the car you probably learned to drive in, and stroke your smooth chin thoughtfully as you learn that 13 May is the day the electric shaver was invented. Find out when and where the first piece of flatpack furniture was invented (Ancient Greece, no less, and it was more of a temple than a wardrobe...), and, on 19 November, remember that there's always a more incompetent parent than you as you recall the day a certain baby boy was dangled off a balcony.

About the Author

Ian Allen is a father of three teenagers and a funny man indeed. He has been a freelance editor from Staffordshire - recently voted England's least amusing county - for the past 17 years. During that time Ian has worked on hundreds of books, a handful of which were even intended to be comical. Ian is qualified to degree-level in Data Processing, which is just hilarious. Ian is perhaps best known as being the compiler of The Very Embarrassing Book of Dad Jokes , also by Portico.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.

Val Rowe

The selections are so varied and the reader reviews are so helpful. A fantastic website for those who love books.

Ann Quintilla

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.

Joy Bosworth

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!
