Readers can now order NEW books directly from City Books’ virtual storefront on Bookshop.org and still shop local. A direct competitor to Amazon, Bookshop is an online bookstore with a mission to financially support local, independent bookstores. By design, Bookshop gives over 75% of its profit margin back to stores strengthening the fragile indie ecosystem and keeping local bookstores an integral part of our culture and communities.
On our curated online booklists, you will find current bestsellers, quirky indie books, and little-known niche titles for readers of all ages and interests. Some of our shelves directly benefit Pittsburgh non-profits working to strengthen Black mental health, support trans rights, and supplement a local bail fund.
