At its core, Bookly is an app meant to help you improve your reading skills. But developing skills of any kind is not easy to do – it takes time and, more importantly, it takes motivation.

This is why we’ve decided to add reading achievements to Bookly – because by being reminded of how much you’ve progressed, you’re motivated to read even more, to push yourself.

With Bookly, you are always in competition with yourself. 

Ok, all this sounds great, but what are reading achievements exactly? Read on to find out.

What are reading achievements?

Simply put, reading achievements are badges you get every time you reach a milestone.

You can find the badges you’ve gathered so far by going to the Stats tab and scrolling down to the Achievements section.


What kind of reading achievements can Bookly track?

There are 8 main categories of reading achievements you can unlock in Bookly:

  1. First timers;

  3. Books read;
  4. Pages read;
  5. Read time;

  1. What can we do if our stats show we unlocked an achievement (in my case, my current reading streak shows 170 or so days) but the badge still doesn’t show as earned (in this case, the 100 day reading streak badge)?
