How far do we get into books before giving up? 

"We’ve all done it - bought a book with great intentions of tearing through it. But then reality sets in. We find ourselves less and less motivated to make it to the end. Author and mathematician Jordan Ellenberg wanted to quantify this phenomenon and has come up with a way to measure when exactly a reader gives up."

Wild Ones by Jon Mooallem.
 Eli:”The book is about the weird ways we conserve animals. Mooallem goes into the history of how we have viewed American wildlife over time and how our thoughts about saving them has changed over time. He does it in an original and funny way without it being overly sentimental. I read a New York Times article where he wrote about squirrels and how they cause power outages all over the US. He also wrote about gay animals before. You should check out his twitter feed. It’s really something to look at. I’m a science writer by profession and it’s great to learn from his style of writing and how he tells stories.”
