    Spark Notes, A Life-Saver

    Spark notes are the most wonderful things in the modern literary world. Without them I would have flunked my Midsummer's nights dream test. (Honestly, why is it shakespeare's greatest comedy?) Although if you read A Midsummer Night's dream as they say Spark Notes are the better, faster, easier way to get an A. Yay Spark nNtes.
