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

Bookbug app screens

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 receive tailored book recommendations, 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.

This app is perfect for young people taking part in the First Minister's Reading Challenge through their 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.
