I swim and read at the same time! It just takes a little practice. LOL! I can also cook and read, watch TV and read, and read by campfire or candle. The one thing I've found I can't do is drive and read (though I can usually get at least a half page done at a red light, LOL).

Waterproof books.

I loved reading your answers to these questions, by the way.

Kelli, you are such a talented rockstar. I can't even read in the bathtub without dropping the book in the water - just ask the Free Libary of Philadelphia!

Sarcasmo - I LOVE waterproof books. That's SO SMART! Say, did you seen the miniture book story on CBS Sunday Morning? Me needs tiny, waterproof books and lots of 'em immediately!
