Bookzilla is Scottish Book Trust's free reading app developed by young people, for young people.

Bookzilla is an app for upper primary and 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 find great book recommendations, search for their favourite genres and challenge themselves to try something new with a reading dare. Teachers can also use the Bookzilla app to track individual or class reading, search for books by genre, find new book suggestions or set class reading challenges.

This app is perfect for young people taking part in the First Minister's Reading Challenge through their primary or secondary school, local library or community group.

Scottish Book Trust has partnered with Browns Books for Students, who have recommended age-appropriate titles for P4-S3 pupils. Gaelic and Scots books will be available to browse as well as English titles.

You can download the app now via the Apple or Play store.
