This may be stereotypical, but it seems like all the commercials and advertisements for Father's Day circle around items like power tools, cologne, and other "manly" items. But not all dads fit that mold, nor should they. There are many fathers out there would much rather spend their time painting, reading, and creating than fixing things in the garage. Yet if you still find yourself stumped as to what to get him this year, don't worry because there are plenty of gifts for dads who love to read.
Book lovers are a particular type of people. Most prefer burying their nose in a good novel on the couch with a blanket and coffee and seem perplexed by people who would rather "watch the movie instead." From the musty smell of a hole-in-the-wall book store to the crinkling sound of breaking in a new read's spine, there are so many things to love about reading — or so I'm told by my bibliophile friends.
So if your dad already owns all his favorite books and you don't feel like shelling out a gazillion dollars on a first edition copy of one, there are tons of great gifts you can get your book-loving father.

What better way for him to show his love for books than by wearing his favorite story in shirt form? These literary shirts ($35+) use text from books, poems, and plays to cover the entirety of the material and create designs that are a nod to the title, like the above picture's Poe reference.
