I'm Writing a Book!
 
Okay, so since I spend my time on this site writing pointless lists all the time, why not make a book on it. "The Pittsburgh Lists" or something like that. What do you think of my idea. Do they already have a book like that?

I don't know if there is one but especially people who have moved away would probably enjoy it!

I'm not sure if you are currently living in Pittsburgh or not, but if you go to any of the book stores in this area, there is a section that is stocked with books pertaining to Pittsburgh. They seem to sell very well. There is a series that deal with different neighborhoods in and directly around Pittsburgh. Of course there are books pertaining to the local sports teams and biography's. If you get a chance, you should check it out. Very interesting.

Good luck with your book.

Yeah, I actually went out to the Pittsburgh Mills today and got a book like that (not like my idea, but still a Pittsburgh book). Borders conned me, but it was worth it.

This is what 'm thinking so far:

You Know you've Been living in Pittsburgh Way Too Long When...
You Know you're a Steelers Fan When...
How to Annoy Somebody Outside of Pittsburgh
Rules For Out of Towners that Come to Pittsburgh
Rules for The Fans for the Other Team When they Come to Watch a Steeler Game
Rejected Pittsburgh Mottos.

Wow, I have to get half these lists up on this site.

Fun Things to Do to Out of Towners
