2. Add at least 3 books to your shelves.  Use the search bar to type in titles or authors of books you’ve read, want to read, or are reading right now.  You can also click on Find New Books from the top navigation bar to see recommended books from other young readers.

3. Write at least 1 book review.  After you add a book to your shelf that you’ve already read, you can write a review of it. Click on the book jacket from your “I Read It’ shelf or search for the books and click on “Go to My Books.”  Here are some tips on How to Write a Book Review.

4. Check out My Friends’ books.  Students will be automatically connected with other students in your class as “Friends.”  Click on My Friends to see your Bookopolis friends. Then, click on a friend’s avatar to see the books on your friends’ shelves.
