How I Use It
Students sign up for free and post what they want to read, are reading, or finished reading. It can be used as an online book club. Students "friend" each other and then can see what they're reading too. I use it to keep track of all the books people tell me to read. Since I read a lot, I might not remember what I thought about a book, but I read my review and it comes back to me. I use this app all the time.
My Take
Students can see how many books they've read, which is a good incentive to read more. They can see what they're friends thought of a book, so a discussion can take place. They can make bookshelves to categorize their books. There's so many ways to get kids to read with this site, it's ridiculous. Start using this site today.
