The best thing about books is that they're sustainable. They're the printed word and, short of destroying them, they'll always be around?whether the internet crashes, we lose electricity, etc. Bart's Books in Ojai celebrates this concept. I visited over the weekend and had a great experience. The honor system tradition is awesome awesome awesome. Even though the store was open, my friends and I each grabbed a book off the exterior shelves. I don't even know anything about the hardcover that I selected, I just wanted a little bit of the store's charm to come home with me. If you love books and you're in the area, you absolutely must check out Bart's.
Pros: Radical outdoor bookstore, first-edition books
