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 associated 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.
