Today, I went to Barnes & Noble in Brooklyn Heights with my two daughters. As usual, the store had a special table filled with bookish gift ideas for an upcoming event. I noticed a reddish “For Dad” sign, promoting father’s day.
The books on the table made me desire a tie.
If it’s up to Barnes & Noble Brooklyn dads will get “The Nazis”, “In Search of Famous Shipwrecks”, “Muscle Cars”, “The History of the CIA” or “Tanks” for father’s day.
Do sales people at B&N really think that fatherhood is bad enough so dads want to escape it reading about Goebbels and Corvettes?
