Hunger Games Mania

There’s no doubt that The Hunger Games is a wildly popular book, especially with young people. But are students actually reading it for reasons other than entertainment. If you take a look at the graph of site usage on EasyBib, you’ll see selected data for the number of times The Hunger Games has been cited in 2012. It’s very exciting to see that students can read the same book for leisure and for school.

For an added fun bonus to this info, take a look at the big spike on the right of the graph. That’s Tuesday, March 27th, the Tuesday after the movie adaptation of The Hunger Games was released. Citations of the book went up about 33% after the movie came out! That really is some Hunger Games Mania!
