Welcome to Bookji. A modern and fun way to get your students excited about books and reading. Bookji is a social reading platform that emphasizes collaboration with peers, emoji integration, and geographical awareness to better captivate young readers with books. Bookji will help create an environment and culture where students see themselves, their classmates, friends and teachers as readers.
Bookji harnesses the most powerful tool to excite kids about reading—peer influence. On Bookji, classmates and friends can create book posts and share book-related content.
