Do you or have you ever used Sparknotes to aide you with assignments and readings?
If I haven't picked up my book in awhile, sometimes I will read sparknotes to see where I left off in the story. Also, sometimes I will read it once I'm done with a book, to see what concepts or themes they discuss. I read mostly classic lit.
It helps to understand the book.
Nah, shmoop is where it's at.

I don't use it out of laziness. I read all my books but use sparknotes when I need clarification or don't understand some things and a summarized explanation helps.
^this. I needed it the first time i read As I Lay Dying. Helps get the most out of a book for me.
Ineffective. My teachers read the sparknotes too and asked specific questions they knew weren't mentioned in there
Just read the damn book, you lazy ass.
