Bookzilla is a free 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 promotes different featured collections every month.
