Rod Towney has become a source of Christmas present ideas as well as a civic leader of Dubbo.
The councillor enjoyed reading A Shed Load of Stories and suggested at this week's Dubbo City Council meeting it would make a fantastic and affordable stocking-filler.
The book, launched earlier this year, contains the life stories of 12 ordinary blokes who go to the Dubbo Community Men's Shed.
Shoppers can call into the shed in Talbragar Street on Thursday afternoon, Saturday afternoon or Monday morning to buy a copy for $10, phone Ray Brown on 6882 9952 or search 'Dubbo Community Men's Shed' for further details.
Fifteen copies of the book, now in its second edition, were on the way to Afghanistan as part of packages for Australian soldiers, Mr Brown reported.
