Toby and I loved Bart's Books the first time we visited Ojai, so I knew I had show it to my family in order to make their Ojai experience complete. Seemingly endless shelves of books, all under a blue sky and sunshine; my mother the bibliophile was in heaven. And, as was inevitable, we left with a couple armloads of goodies. It's a good thing this book store is more than an hour away from where I live, because otherwise my pocketbook would be in reaaaal trouble (and I don't even own a pocketbook). 

Happy Monday! Let the countdown to going home for Christmas begin...
