Schools Out for the Shmooper: This Year on Shmoop

Mountain View, California (PRWEB) June 19, 2014

Another year, another stampede of students and teachers doing their thing on Shmoop. Shmoop, a digital publishing company that makes fresh, engaging resources for students and teachers, reports this school years stats:

· To Kill a Mockingbird was the most popular guide on Shmoopby a landslide. No ones surprised, as this little novel also took the title of Shmoops Literary March Madness Champion.
· More people read about The Great Gatsby than Of Mice and Men and The Catcher in the Rye combined.
· Shakespeare took the author cake, with 4 of Shmoops Top 25 most-read guides.
· The Hunger Games trilogy didnt lose its mojo: all three books were in the Top 50 most-read guides. Also making the cut? Tons of book-to-movie blockbusters including Divergent, The Fault in Our Stars, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
· Essay Lab shot up in popularity. More people used Essay Lab than read about Dracula.
· When it comes to Test Prep, folks still love their ACT* and SAT* more than any other exam.

Shmoops take? No matter how many vampires, dystopias, or fancy new exams make their way onto the scene, the classics arent going anywhere anytime soon.
