July Recap

Team Eleventh Stack has enjoyed another sunny month of summer Library adventures. Here’s a look back at the topics we blogged about in July 2015.

Ross finally got to see Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. He also looked forward to The Voices and read a book that made him want to gouge his eyes out. Elsewhere in movie madness, Tara explored some amusing taglines.

It’s a thin line between love and hate, and some of our bloggers explored that this month. Irene mused about unlikable characters and shared some of her secret talentsScott, for his part, gave voice to his love for Tumblr and paid tribute to one of his local TV heroes with a post in a similar delivery style.

Kayla shared how The Girl on the Train helped her with her summer reading goal. Suzy also wrote about her reading goals (feminist classics) for the Adult Summer Reading program. As of this writing, she has not freaked out.

Ginny recommended some books to go along with your favorite podcasts and asked for your input about what her book club should read next. Elsewhere in technological advances, Kelly rejoiced over Hoopla’s new digital comics content. We’re pretty sure she’s reading a digital comic right now, too.

Many team members reviewed single titles this month. Melissa F. offered some thoughts on Pittsburgh native Gerald Stern’s new poetry collection, Divine NothingnessJoelle was moonstruck by Neal Stephenson’s new novel, SevenevesAbbey finished Go Set a Watchman before the rest of us, and wasn’t all that impressed. Meanwhile, Eric was completely blown away by the sci-fi anthology Mothership.

Jess celebrated a milestone birthday with some classic callbacks and spilled some book club secrets. She may or may not still be reading under an umbrella. Meanwhile, Leigh Anne ran around trying to convince you that exercise doesn’t have to be awful. She may or may not be exhausted.

Last, but certainly not least, Eleventh Stack featured two great guest posts this month. Whitney Z. confessed her affinity for robots, while Sheila explained how she’s stumbled across some of her favorite books and authors over the years.

Now that you’re all caught up on what you may have missed in July, we hope you’ll stick with us for bloggish adventures in August and beyond. Summer’s not over yet, and the wealth of Library-related goodness we have to share with you is just beginning.
