I know, I've been MIA. I'm finally getting the hang of this new job, schedule, and lack of sleep (not to mention this crappy weather). But, I haven't forgotten you Pittsburgh! It's getting to that point where it's the end of Winter (or so it should be), everyone is getting antsy, and we all just want to shed our winter layers and get out and have fun! But don't forget, what comes after the snow and below freezing temperatures? RAIN! So what can we do to cure our cabin fever but keep warm and dry at the same time? Why not get lost in one of the city's eclectic little bookstores? Curl up on a bean bag chair, sip your latte and read something you haven't read in a while (today is National Children's Book Day), or perhaps something you've been wanting to read (I still haven't hopped on the "50 Shades Band Wagon"). Here are my top 5 favorite bookstores in the city!
Once located in the Southside (now in Dormont), Eljay's books is known for carrying some pretty weird stuff! They hold an interesting collection of horror, sci-fi, fantasy, and a variety of cookbooks. Come feed your inner geek! Hours and more HERE.
For all you Sherlocks and Nancy Drews, there's a special place just for you in Oakmont: the Mystery Lover's Bookstore!! They are one of the largest mystery book stores in the country and hold thousands of titles, authors and categories. Get your looking glasses out and sneek into Mystery Lover's Bookstore!
