    Dear Jody,

    I'm not sure what DRP is, that is, if it is "official" terminology or a
    neat idea
    you coined. In any case, for me as a teacher, DRP for an individual work is
    with interest in plot, difficulty (i.e. frustration) in reading, and ability
    to connect
    in a meaningful way with the text/theme/content through prior experience or
    guided by
    students or teacher. It's difficult to predict the DRP for some books;
    others seem
    to capture the abilities and interests of a wide-range of students: thus, a
    very high DRP.
    Perhaps we should be rating books by DRP.
