Bookstores across Pennsylvania, Part 1
Last month – just before the Big Storm hit – my husband and I took a trip to Pennsylvania to see the fall colors.
And (of course) to look for books!
Fall colors we saw aplenty! And I’m so happy we were able to see them before winter charged in full-blast.
We also saw books – and some great bookstores – like this one:
Eljays Books in Pittsburgh, PA was just about to start a special event: a “Read-a-thon” for charity! You’ve heard of “walk-a-thons”, right? Where people sponsor you for every mile you walk?
Well, in a read-a-thon, they sponsor you for every hour you read – and the people at Eljays were busily setting up chairs, reading material and, of course fuel (aka snacks!) for the intrepid readers.
But they weren’t so busy they couldn’t find time to be friendly – and I’m happy to say I found some great books there, as did my husband!
Next week: D.J. Ernst in Selinsgrove, PA – selling books OLD SCHOOL!
