Select Recommended to see books that are recommended to you based on your grade and your Interest Inventory. (Your Star score is also used if it is available.)
You will see a few book ideas at the top of the page. The book shown will change after a few seconds, but you can also use the arrows to see the next or last book.
You will also see many categories of recommended books. These might include books in your ZPD (your reading range), top picks, books from special collections, books your teacher chose to share, books like ones you have already read, new books, books popular with students in your grade, and books about the topics you chose as interesting to you. Choose the arrow in a row to see more books.
You can select the drop-down list in the "Because I Like" category of recommended books to choose a different category. You may also have a category that lets you choose to see recommended books in a specific language.
If you want to change the interests you choose, select Edit your interests above the recommended books.
