Here are steps for adding books to review, rate, and log in the Bookopolis App. Note that you’ll need to sign in to be able to add books to your My Books shelf. You can download the app for free in the Apple App Store.
Type in the title or author of the book you’re looking for in the search bar at the top of the screen.
You can also click “DISCOVER” on the bottom of the screen anytime to return to the Search Bar.
Click on the Cover and then click “Add to My Books.”
You’ll see 3 options for which My Books shelf to place the book on:
*Reading It Now (use this if you want to add the book to your reading log.)
*I Read It (use this if you want to rate, review, or recommend a book.)
*Want to Read (use this is you want to remember it as a book to read in the future.)
To either log it or rate/review/recommend it, go to MY BOOKS. To get there, click the MY BOOKS button on the bottom of the screen. If you want to log your reading, go to READING IT NOW. If you want to rate, review, or recommend a book, go to I READ IT.
From your I READ IT shelf, click the book you want to rate, review, or recommend. Click MY REVIEW and as you’ll see on the next screenshot, you’ll be able to add/edit your review.
If you want to RECOMMEND this book, click the RECOMMEND button at the top of the pop-up and share it with a classmate.
From your I READ IT shelf, click the book you want to rate, review, or recommend. Click MY REVIEW and then EDIT YOUR REVIEW (even if it’s the first time you’re adding a review.) You can then add a star rating and type in your review.
Click POST at the top of your screen when you’re done. If you want to edit it in the future, you’ll repeat the steps above to access your review.
To log your reading, make sure your book is on your READING IT NOW shelf. Then, go to the bottom of the screen and click MORE – MY READING LOG
If you want to use our timer to help you track your reading time, click START TIMER. You’ll be able to log these minutes with one click after you stop the timer.
On this screen, you’ll also see a summary of your Bookopolis activity here including minutes read, added books, friends, and points.
To add to your log, click ADD TO MY LOG. You must fill out the BOOK, MINUTES READ, and PAGES READ. You have the option to add Genre, Level, and Notes about your Reading.
On the app, we don’t have the option right now to manually add in a title. If you want to add reading that is not on your MY BOOKS shelf, you can do this on the Reading Log on the Bookopolis.com website. On the website, teachers can use the SEARCH FOR MISSING BOOKS feature to send students a message with a link to these books so students can add them to MY BOOKS.
