Our mission

To improve reading rates across the United States

Bookji's mission is to increase reading rates among elementary and middle school students. We plan to accomplish this by getting our youngest genreation of readers interested in books.

Our story

Finding the right book

Bookji began as a final project for the Princeton English course, ENG 385: Children's literature. The original idea stemmed from the fact that I, Bookji's founder, did not like to read in grade school. This is because I struggled to find books that suited my interests and imagination. I knew my experience with reading was shared with other students, so I decided to create a platform that gave young readers the tools to find books that better mirrored themselves.
