  1. An hilarious favorite for Father's Day is the release of The Grateful Dad. This includes a book that covers 52 columns that are on topics that parents of all ages can relate to, and many columns aren’t specifically about Zavoral family happenings, either. There is a quiz for potential babysitters, a guide on how to teach your kids to throw, instructions on how to use a video camera to aid during childbirth, and using your children’s natural in­stincts to stop thieves dead in their tracks.
  2. Robert Ludlum’s The Bourne Ascendancy by Eric Van Lustbader continues the story of the most well-liked and compelling character in contemporary fiction, rogue secret agent Jason Bourne.
