It's been a while since our last Shop Hop post. Like all good book lovers, we cannot resist a bookstore, often seeking them out when we travel. Shop Hop is a way for us to showcase some of the bookstores that we come across in our travels.
Over the summer I went to Ojai, CA for the first time. Ojai is a picturesque, rural city north of Los Angeles near Santa Barbara that has wine tasting, beautiful vistas and much more. I was there for a relaxing bachelorette weekend. My friend, knowing me well, did some research ahead of time and found out that Bart's Books was a well known and popular bookstore in the area.

Bart's has a pretty extensive collection of books from all genres. YA and children's probably had the smallest selection. The shop also had comfortable chairs throughout, where people sat and enjoyed the weather while looking through potential book purchases. There were a couple of small courtyards that had tables and chairs that invited you to sit down for a while.
If you ever find yourself in Ojai, Bart's is definitely worth a stop. A charming and light filled wonderland, Bart's Books is a treat for any book lover. You can find more photos from my trip to Bart's in our Facebook album. Happy shopping!
