Some ideas for your pops.

You forgot, didn’t you. Yeah, yeah you did. Don’t deny it. I mean, lucky for you you can scramble this weekend and still pull off an elegant gift-giving experience because 1) here’s a list that has some pretty great options, 2) these are probably available to you at your nearest bookstore/internet connection/library (don’t knock a solid two-week-long gift), and 3) books are possibly the easiest thing to wrap. Like, even if you’re my brother and don’t understand the physics of paper and scotch tape, you could still handle it.

So go. Take care of that business and prove to your father that yes, once again, you are the best person ever. I mean, second to your father of course.

The Scrapbook pulled ten things from the interview with the author of Cronkite, Doug Brinkley, but here is all-important thing #11 (thanks Jack).

On my desk: finished copies of Douglas Brinkley’s Cronkite.
Not only is it the epic biography of an icon—written by one of America’s best selling historians—it includes a picture of Walter Cronkite with an armful of kittens:
