What was Pittsburgh reading in 2016? According to the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, books adapted into films (The Girl on the Train, Me Before You), a lot of Patterson (Cross Justice, Murder House, 15th Affair), memoirs both heartbreaking and funny (When Breath Becomes Air, Why Not Me?) and Marie Kondo's The Life–Changing Magic of Tidying Up (because no one can resist). How many of these 29 books have you read?
The Steelers were already in the playoffs, so team stars stayed out of Sunday’s overtime win, 27-24, against Cleveland. And that means no injuries as the playoffs start next weekend when the Miami Dolphins come to Heinz Field, the Post-Gazette reports. Also of note: one of the players didn't hit the field, but hit one knee to propose to his girlfriend. Find out who — and if she accepted.
