Finished Animal Husbandry by Laura Zigman.  Yipee, this book has a movie.  The book was okay. It was about a girl who fell in love and then her partner suddenly quit liking her.  She was so confused that she began to study the mating of animals.  She began writing a column for a men's magazine under an alias about the behaviors of men and how they are similar to animals , under an alias.  I sort of felt like I had heard this story before.  So, I checked online and there was a movie made based on it.  I have seen it but I don't completely remember it so I will watch it again tonight. It is called Someone Like You  starring Ashley Judd, Greg Kinner, and Hugh Jackman

Favorite quote from the book.  Pg. 200  The Origins of New Cow Theory   The males of most mammalian species have a definite urge towards seeking variety in their sexual partners.  if a male rat is introduced to a female rat in a cage, a remarkably high copulation rate will be observed at first.  Then, progressively the male will tire of that particular female and, even though there is no apparent change in her receptivity, he eventually reaches a point where he has little apparent libido.  However, if the original female is then removed and a fresh one is supplied, the male is immediately restored to his former vigor and enthusiasm.  Glenn Wilson, The Great Sex Divide.
