A different kind of swim lit

The story is tragic, and I don’t wish to undermine that, but I am so absolutely intrigued by this part: “As her family told The Globe in a lengthy letter responding to an interview request, ‘She even combined her two passions for reading and fitness by figuring out how to read a book while swimming laps.’” I can’t even begin to imagine how this could be accomplished. A book enclosed in plastic wrap? A page skimmed at the end of every lap? An audio book and a waterproof Sony sports walkman? Regardless, I am impressed.

    yep-I'm curious too! it is tragic because she clearly had been struggling in a system that was not equipped or willing to concede she had an illness, including her family! Perhaps she kept it on the edge and at the end of every lap she read a page?

    I heard about her death through my BIL in April because they were friends (he is in the Army). True to her nature she called HIM to see how he was doing right before she left. At the time there were rumours that she committed suicide but my sister & BIL didn't believe the because she seemed so together the last time they saw her. I guess you can never really tell.
