GrandpaFilter: I just found out that I'm pregnant and would like to break the news to my stepfather in the form of a gift... specifically, a book.

I'm going up to visit my parents later this month and my mother (who already knows about the pregnancy) thought it would be nice to surprise her husband - she suggested I give him a book about grandfathers.
I think this is a wonderful idea and would like to find the perfect book in which I can write the perfect sappy inscription. Fathers/Grandfathers/Gift Buyers of MetaFilter, please hope me!
[Note: It should be mentioned ahead of time that the man is a bit of a "book tourist" and won't necessarily read the book, or at least not the entirety of it. It's the thought that counts here.]
