I love Dave Barry. I can't remember how I first picked up his humor books but I think there is only one or two that I don't have. You can see that when I love a book, I really love it to the point of losing dust covers and reading it so much the bindings show wear. I was sad when he stopped writing his column on a regular basis and his humor books have slowed down considerably as he has transitioned to fiction. He was in Houston to promote a young adult book that he wrote with Ridley Pearson and even though I don't read the series, I went to the book signing to see him talk. I love living in Houston that gives me opportunities like this, I love the location of my "new" apartment that makes going to things like this on a weeknight considerably easier and I love Dave Barry.
