New to Washington? Or do you just want help planning your next weekend to Whidbey Island or Lake Chelan? Moon, a premier travel-guide imprint for those who still like to page through a helpful book (especially when pulled over on the shoulder of an Eastern Washington farm road, far from a smartphone signal), has a fresh 495-page guide to the state of Washington. Moon is the only travel publisher that puts out a general-interest guidebook devoted exclusively to the Evergreen State, says author Matthew Lombardi. He moved to Seattle four years ago after “five beautiful summers” of visits and writes with an adoptive resident’s warm affection for our corner of the continent. (Avalon Travel, July 2016, $23.99)
