Bookzilla is a new app for early secondary school students in Scotland. The app encourages pupils to read for pleasure, whether they are already regular readers or just embarking on their reading journey. Young people can receive tailored book recomendations, see what's popular among their classmates and challenge themselves to try something new with a reading dare. The app will also promote different featured collections every month.

Scottish Book Trust has partnered with Browns Books for Students(this will open in a new window), who have recommended age-appropriate titles for S1-S3 pupils. 1,700 books will initially be listed on Bookzilla, with more regular updates to be added. Gaelic and Scots books will be available to browse as well as English titles.
