EATS SHOOTS & LEAVES BY LYNNE TRUSS PDF

Meal for 2 : Rs 50 See the crowd? This tiny, unassuming eatout had recently been voted as one of the best idli - coffee joints in Bangalore which invoked our curiosity to check out the place ourselves. But as luck would have it, we would always end up here when it was closed - on Sundays and after 7pm on other days. They are also closed between 11 am to 3pm on all days. It opens at am and by the time we reached the place, around 8 am on a Saturday morning, it was packed, with people spilling over to the road and many families even having their tiffin-giffin in the confines of their cars.

These results are interesting for how they highlight how people read books for many reasons such as marketing campaigns, literary prestige, or following a popular author , and this is reflected in their decision whether to continue reading or to abandon a book. I was surprised when, reading writer interviews to learn about preferred writing times , how many have given interviews to GoodReads over the years. Fixing GoodReads. Little recent data. A really abandonable-book probably would never become popular enough to get enough abandoned-tags to crack the list.

So as it is, a simple sort-by-count tells us nothing more than a lot of people have read these books. Low counts mean sampling error. In comparison, the most-read book on the list has 6,, reads. Bayesian correction for flukes. This makes it a good fit for Bayesian multilevel modeling : we can treat each book as a random effect, and get shrinkage back to a common mean, reducing the damage done by the sampling error.

Sounds good to me, and the result should be amusing. GR lies to bots. GR sits on a throne of lies. At first, I thought I could simply use my usual elinks -dump trick and iterate through the 25 pages GR allows.

Preprocessing Transforming to normality. Rowling 3. Martin 4. As expected, read count correlates strongly with abandon count, and also as makes sense, being a more recent book correlates with fewer reads less time for people to have read it. Simple Proportions So the data looks sensible.

What do the raw abandon rates look like when we look at the worst largest abandon rates? Valente 0. Delany 0. Proportion rankings look right. So Black Leopard, Red Wolf topping the ranking may not be flattering, but may be fair. Bayesian Modeling Implementing Bayesian correction… However—that brings us back to sampling error. Black Leopard, Red Wolf just came out in and hardly anyone has read it. Is it really plausible that they have the highest abandon rates?

So the next step is Bayesian modeling to account for the uncertainty caused by small n for these most-abandonable books. Sample Rhat sd Intercept 1. Sample Rhat Intercept Intercept Est. Intercept Q2. Intercept Q Ah well! Least Abandoned Top addictive books. On a more positive note, of the books which are included in the dataset, which 30 have the lowest abandon rates?

The Most 'Abandoned' Books on GoodReads

Most people would subscribe to the consensus that in all of these areas it is meaningful to describe some kinds of aberrations as incorrect, or at least as inappropriate in particular contexts. Prescription aims to draw workable guidelines for language users seeking advice in such matters. It can be argued that such a lingua franca , if needed, will evolve by itself, but the desire to formulate and define it is very widespread in most parts of the world. Writers or communicators who wish to use words clearly, powerfully, or effectively often use prescriptive rules, believing that these may make their communications more widely understood and unambiguous.

Here is the perfect cure for insomnia! I was interested in biology from an early age; I watched Marlin Perkins and Jacque Cousteau and I spent a lot of time outdoors on family camping and fishing trips. Even though I grew up near Houston during the Apollo years, I always thought that it would be much cooler to be a biologist than an astronaut. When I was in the sixth grade my family moved to Australia for four years. I had the incomparable experience of living in another country and experiencing a whole new way of life.

Join Lynne Truss on a hilarious tour through the rules of punctuation that is sure to sort the dashes from the hyphens. We all had the basic rules of punctuation drilled into us at school, but punctuation pedants have good reason to suspect they never sank in. It is not only the rules of punctuation that have come under attack but also a sense of why they matter.
