About this Project:
You should invest in my app because kids, teenager’s, and adults also struggle even with chapter books, magazines, and even people don’t have good eye vision so that can also affect reading a single book. I promise that I will get different books that people will love and enjoy and that they could improve their reading skills fast. Thank you!

Gurpreet Lally is a Sr. Community Manager at CareerVillage.org, a non-profit that uses a Q&A platform to connect students with free career advice from professionals in the fields they want to get into. Before this position, she was an AmeriCorps member and worked as the Youth Services Coordinator at the American Red Cross. When she is not working, she can be found lounging in the sun, doing crosswords, reading, and Yelping!
I love the idea but think it can be flushed out a little more. Think about the following questions:
- How will you determine reading level? Perhaps, you make users take a test at the beginning of their app journey.
- Will students be able to save the books they browse?
- How will you incentivize the app? For example, maybe it's online badges or stickers.

I would recommend at the end of each reading material, perhaps how a mini quiz for Readers to test their reading or grammatical knowledge. This would be interactive and fun!
Overall, an impressive foundation for what could be an excellent future app to bring to Students everywhere!

Feedback from the Community:
This is such a cool idea for an app! I admire your app's focus on building reader skills through practice. I think it's such an important skill for students and the fact that "Readers Inc" tailors the user's interests/favorite genres to read is awesome! Keep up the great work!
Thank you for your support! Comments are closed for this year. Join us to look forward to next year's projects!
