We’re excited to share that our 2024 Sora Sweet Reads program has launched! Sora Sweet Reads is our no-cost collection of always available ebooks and select audiobooks for grades K-12, available in the US/Canada and globally.

If you’ve previously opted into the program, you should already see a special curation of age-appropriate titles added to your Sora Explore page. This year, students will have access to more than 100 titles! 

Whether your students are at home, on vacation or sitting poolside, they’ll be able to borrow from this refreshing collection of simultaneous-use titles until August 26.  This means your students can read the books they want immediately and won’t need to place holds or wait in line for an in-demand title.

The collection includes 147 juvenile titles, 17 young adult titles, and 16 general adult-level titles (typically appropriate for your older high school students), with a mix of ebooks, audiobooks, and read-alongs. So there’s something for everyone, whether kids are relaxing alone, practicing a read-along with a family member, or listening to an audiobook while out on a run.

Plus, to make it even more fun, students can earn a special Sora Sweet Reads achievement badge in Sora for reading a title in the collection.  

Let your readers know there are free books waiting for them! 

You can check out all of the titles available this year over on the Sora Sweet Reads website (check out global titles here). There, you’ll also find a suite of printable marketing materials and digital graphics to share within your school community.

This year, our print materials include flyers, bookmarks, editable parent letters and two reading challenges! Digital graphics can be shared via social media, in emails, newsletters, on school screens or anywhere else you can imagine. 

We know many of you are busy getting ready for the end of the school year, so we want to help make promoting this free collection as easy as possible!

In addition to promotional materials, we’re also offering a few supplemental resources this year! Our sister company, TeachingBooks, provides more than 265,000 curated materials from trusted educational sources, along with their own proprietary content, to enrich many titles that are taught in the classroom.
