Summerland | Michael Chabon
101 posts | 24 read | 20 to read
From the Pulitzer Prize winning Michael Chabon comes this bestselling novel for readers of all ages that blends fantasy and folklore with that most American coming-of-age ritual: baseballnow in a new edition, with an original introduction by the author. Ethan Feld is having a terrible summer: his father has moved them to Clam Island, Washington, where Ethan has quickly established himself as the least gifted baseball player the island has ever seen. Ethans luck begins to change, however, when a mysterious baseball scout named Ringfinger Brown and a seven-hundred-and-sixty-five-year-old werefox enter his life, dragging Ethan into another world called the Summerlands. But this beautiful, winter-less place is facing destruction at the hands of the villainous Coyote, and it has been prophesized that only Ethan can save it. In this cherished modern classic, the New York Times bestselling, Pulitzer Prize winning author brings his masterful storytelling, dexterous plotting, and singularly envisioned characters to a coming-of-age novel for readers of all ages.

I have two books up for grabs. I have no one to pass these on to. Both are hard cover and in excellant condition. I am sure some Litten would like them. Maybe for a classroom or children. If you would like 1 or both email me at lisa@thespineview.com. First come, first served!

Repost for @Andrew65 :
To celebrate Summer we are having a special #24B4Monday Readathon the last weekend in Aug, & this time it will run the extra day to give even more time to clock up those hours & minutes. As an added theme let‘s read some books on a Summer theme - beach reads, books set in Summer, Summer in the title, books that make you happy like a Summer‘s day, etc😂If in the Southern Hemisphere feel free to read Summer or Winter books.

MaleficentBookDragon I'm in! 📚 2w
jb72 @MaleficentBookDragon glad to have you aboard! 2w

2. Sweet! But a combo is always good! (Chocolate covered pretzels anyone?)
3. I want a dog but I looooove my cats and am definitely labeled as a crazy cat lady.
4. MOUNTAINS! I hate the beach. I picked the wrong state...

It‘s been a while since I‘ve done a book exchange! These prompts are fun. 🙂 #summersantagoespostal #summerthisorthat

2. I love sweets, especially chocolate!
3. I love cats and dogs but right now I have a super sweet golden retriever that is my life. ❤️🐕
4. Beach!
5. No idea who to tag. Love everyone! 💗

3. Based on the fact I have 3 cats and 1 dog, you might think I favor cats ... But the truth is that I simply cannot choose. Love them both!
4. Mountains 🏞️ We are actually in the process of moving from Maryland to West Virginia - trading those sandy beaches for the beautiful mountain ridges!
