- Track progress through books and create an all-time reading log.
- Use an easy barcode scanner to quickly add titles.
- Record reading sessions with a reading timer or log an entire book with a click.
- Achieve streaks for reading multiple days in a row and badges for reaching reading goals.
- Complete fun enrichment activities and leave book reviews.
- Access reading recommendations and resources.
- Add friends from your organization to see what they’re reading and compete on leaderboards.
- View reading stats, including totals and averages of time spent reading and titles read.

Perfect for students, families, and readers of all ages: Sign up everyone in your family within a single library, company, or Beanstack Go account, or use SSO to sign in to each of your students’ rostered school accounts and swiftly toggle between them. You can grow your reading habits together, while also logging and tracking reading progress individually. We never sell your data or use it to show you ads, so Beanstack is safe for everyone.

Pair with Badge Books: The Beanstack reading tracker app works hand-in-hand with our Badge Books to inspire young readers with custom reading challenges that include matching virtual and sticker badges, away-from-screen activities, and a reading calendar. Together, the Beanstack app and Badge Books inspire families to build a habit of reading that stays with children for life.

I love this app for tracking our reading. We use it for our summer reading program. They updated a while ago where you can log multiple readers at once. I wish they would do that to join reading challenges as well. The only think I don't like is when I try to scan a title. I usually still end up counting the pages, and it doesn't always log the book.

Not user-friendly. Hard to navigate. When you log day read, you should be able to automatically put in pages and time read as well. Takes 5-10 minutes to figure out how to get to the place where you can add time and pages. No help guide. Trial and error. Most frustrating part of the summer reading challenge is trying to use this app.

I wish I could tell you how the app is, but I'm unable to actually add any readers. I can go through the process to add a reader, but it never saves. But I was hoping to use this for the summer challenge at our local library system, but unless the issue is fixed it seems impossible. I would love to update this review when I can actually use the app!
