Actually, the first thing I thought of is just that: rivets on Levi jeans. Bill wears Levis. He has always worn Levis. When I met Bill 37 years ago I was riveted by him; I still am. Yes, Bill is riveting.
Books can be riveting. I love to read books that can hold my attention and are hard to put down. Some books are entertaining and others are interesting. The ones that keep you riveted are the memorable ones, though. I am always in search of those.
I always find animals riveting. Animal behaviour fascinates me. I enjoy learning things about animals, and also from them. Many of the TV shows that I watch involve animals, from Cesar Milan's dog training to "Whale Wars". ("Whale Wars" is technically about human behaviour, which is pretty riveting. But let's save that for another time.)
One TV show that keeps me riveted is "River Monsters", with Jeremy Wade. He is a British biologist, author and angler who travels the world seeking "monster fish". I have learned about many fascinating fish and the places they inhabit, from Jeremy Wade. He always utilizes local, indigenous people as scouts and guides in his travels. It is all very educational and exciting.

I think that animals, nature, and the world around us is endlessly riveting. I never cease to be amazed by how these components all fit together in this place we call Earth. We share it with them, the animals. Lest we forget, they were here first.
