Good Books for African American Men: Great Father's Day Gifts
If you need to buy good books for African American men as Father's Day gifts, you should check out the Father's Day book list below. Because lots of the literature that is written for Black men is usually Afrocentric non-fiction or reference books, and few bestsellers fit that bill. I did more than just muse over the bestsellers list. I engaged in some covert research, so the titles I recommend for brothas could appeal to young and older Black males who love to read.
How To Find The Right Book For Father's Day
I conducted a casual or simple observational survey, of Black men I encountered reading, during a week of commuting on the bus. I spied over shoulders and peered under clutched arms to see what kinds of recreational reading brothers were doing. This type of informal survey is usually done prior to beginning a structured observation survey.
You may want to use a similar technique for the bibliophile on your Father's Day gift list. Don't bother skimming through the titles in his library. Find where he stashes the good reads. Maybe on the night stand, his brief case. My stash is on my desk. I keep books there, that I read for inspiration and few I consult for wisdom or fact finding. Make a note of any author whose name appears on more than one book and what subjects constitutes the bulk of the reading material you find. This technique will help you to uncover important clues to the must-read book for any man.
Good Books For Men Who Prefer Magazine
Coffee table books were commonplace in the 60's and 70's, until magazines with slick glossy photos and timely weekly editions replaced them. The photo-supported, larger than life stories in People, Jet, and Time magazines provide the only source of written information for some men.
If the only literature you find during your discovery period are magazines, note their topics and look for anthologies by the same publishers. It takes a little snooping, when your on a quest to find good books for African American men, for Father's Day gifts, but that's one of the things that makes gift giving rewarding, special and fun.
