Strange Things are Afoot at the Circle K.

I bought a book tonight, and already finished it. I started it at about 6:45 and finished it at about 9:45. I'm surprised it took that long, it was only 210 pages, with fairly large print. It's called "Dave Barry Does Japan." Like anything by Dave Barry it was one of the funniest things I've ever read. Dave Barry went to Japan, and wrote all about it. Hilarity insues. It did have one chapter that was serious, about Hiroshima. A very different tone from the rest of the book. In fact, the chapter was seperated from the rest of the book by a dark gray page before and after the chapter. It showed that Dave Barry is capable of writing something touching, instead of just comedy.
