Swimming Studies

I'm slightly obsessed with this book that I saw on a blog (click there for an interview w/ the author) - Swimming Studies is to be released on the 5th and I'm going to have to put it on my Christmas list. (hey, 6 months goes by fast). It's a memoir of the authors life as a swimmer and involves some of her paintings, musings and bathing suit collection, etc...I was a swimmer in HS and would love to travel down memory lane through her writing. I am sad to say I haven't swam for exercise probably since then but I loved it and everytime I smell chlorine it takes me back to that pool in HS. good times!
