Contrary to what older people may think, kids across America are still reading books, a new report from student analytics site Learnalytics shows.
“What Kids Are Reading: And The Path to College and Careers’’ surveyed almost 10 million students from 31,327 schools across the country, Mic reports. The book most read by Massachusetts and Rhode Island high school senior was Nightby Elie Wiesel, about a father and son’s experience at Auschwitz in the mid-1940’s.
As you may be able to tell from the graphic, the most popular book in 16 of the 50 states was John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars. Frankensteinby Mary Shelley, Animal Farm by George Orwell, and Macbeth by William Shakespeare were each the most popular books in four states.
Green also had luck elsewhere in New England, as his Looking for Alaska topped the list in Maine. Landlocked Vermont spent a lot of time reading about The Great Wide Sea, Connecticut spent some time on the popular Animal Farm, and Beast Feast topped the list in New Hampshire.
