Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is a Father's Day freebie, so I wanted to list some books I'd buy for my own dad! My dad is a pretty cool guy (I mean, he'd have to be, to put up with me during my teenage years!). He instilled in me a love of the outdoors and was a big influence in me becoming the reader I am today.
Into Thin Air: My dad is an avid outdoorsman - he loves hiking, skiing, and backpacking. I think he would be fascinated by this account of the 1996 disaster on Mt. Everest (maybe not so much the disaster part, but the prep that goes into a climb like that!).
Rick Steves Germany 2017: Rick Steves' guidebooks are a must-have when you're traveling. My dad and stepmom have taken some amazing trips in the last couple years, and I know Germany is on their wishlist.
Braving it: A Father, a Daughter, and an Unforgettable Journey into the Alaskan Wild: I get my love of hiking from my dad, so I thought this memoir about a father and daughter traveling and working together in Alaska would be perfect.
Game 7, 1986: Failure and Triumph in the Biggest Game of My Life: My dad is a huge Mets fan, so I think he would really enjoy this in-depth look at Game 7 in the year they won the World Series.
The Devil in the White City: My sister and I love the non-fiction works of Erik Larson. She mentioned his books to our dad, and he seemed really interested in them. This is the perfect one to start with.
What book would you buy for your dad?
