Another reason bookselling beats cubicle hell

Today I drove up to Bart’s Books in Ojai, one of my favorite bookstores.

In fact, it’s the location of the big globe in the photo at the top of this blog, with me holding that lovely copy of “Last Flight” by Amelia Earhart, which I bought there several months ago, fully intending to resell, but then at the last minute couldn’t bring myself to do it because it just looks soooo cool, so decided to keep it on my personal bookshelf for now, at least till taxes come due next year, and what with Obamacare it may have to go but still …

Anyway, I always find killer books there! And even when on occasion I don’t – how can you resist a bookstore that looks like this?

But it’s not just Bart’s that I love, it’s the entire drive from Reseda to Ojai that just makes me … happy. Because I stay off the freeways and main roads as much as possible – so wind up driving through areas that look like this:

and sharing the road with traffic like this:

during the height of rush hour.

So you can see why I say – bookselling beats this:

any day of the week!!
