We shut down our two physical stores on Sunday, March 15, because it seemed the right thing to do.
This unfortunately instantly shut-off 75-80% of our revenue. We are continuing to exist very, very precariously.
We need to replace this revenue with online sales.
You can click above to browse our online inventory. Buy any 3 books, and we'll add a similar fourth one of our choosing for free.
Our online inventory tends to be more narrowly focused than that which we usually sell in-store. So. . .
We're also offering an incredible deal on books from the floors of our stores. (We have close to 50,000 between our stores, our backrooms, and what's on-line.
For just $20 plus tax and shipping ($27.00), you'll get either 3 trade paperbacks (the larger size), 2 hardcovers, 4 children's books, or 4 mass-market paperbacks (the smaller size) on a monthly basis.
May Gd bless you and your family and friends and keep you all safe.

Two Great Stores. Two Great Pittsburgh Neighborhoods.
Since opening our first location at 929 Liberty Avenue in Downtown Pittsburgh in 2013, and our second store at 2030 Murray Avenue in Squirrel Hill in 2014, we've offered the densest concentration of well selected used books and records at great prices in all of Pittsburgh. We've been repeatedly voted Best in Pittsburgh in City Paper, and most recently in Pittsburgh Magazine's 2018 "Best of Pittsburgh" issue.
We buy used books and vinyl records in our stores every day we're open, and so our selection is constantly changing and growing. Additionally, for large collections, we'll come to you. Please see our page here on our site for details about selling us your books, including what we're looking for in particular.
SATURDAY NIGHT READERS: During the months of January until February 16th we're open on Saturday nights in Squirrel Hill from 6:50 pm to 9 pm. After that, we'll be open from 7:15 pm until 9:30 pm. Refreshments are free.
