International Literacy Day and Booktrack

Today is International Literacy Day, which is a big deal at Booktrack. Did you know that there are nearly 4 billion people in the world who are literate? At Booktrack we are committed to helping that number grow everyday.

But, do note, you need to sign up to keep the Booktracks on your Bookshelf, aka your account. If you don’t sign up the Booktrack will only be free to read for the given day we promote it.

Our mantra is to get people reading, and keep them interested, so they keep reading. We have revolutionized reading and kicked it up a notch, by adding synchronized soundtracks with ambient sounds, music and sound effects to your favourite stories, and new stories you are just discovering. We are adding new authors and stories daily to our ever growing library. We want to steer you away from the TV and get you reading!

Reading not only encourages imagination and creativity, it also acts as the catalyst for social and global process. Reading opens up doors to worlds we wouldn’t have access to otherwise.

A world without books is a world few of us, or dare we say none of us, would want to be part of. That’s why we, at Booktrack, are doing everything we can to make sure people stay interested in reading.

Reading a story allows you to choose who plays the main characters, it lets you picture the scenery and demands the use of not only your intelligence but also your concentration and frequently brings into play your imagination, particularly if you’re reading a work of fiction.

There literally has been no better time to join the Booktrack community than now. So go on, amplify your reading experience and read your favorite books with a synchronized soundtrack, that tracks to your reading pace. You’ll get an experience like no other, and you’ll be helping open the door to worlds unknown to those who need it most. It’s a win-win story!
