Usage: I have just begun a guided reading program and I have leveled my students. I don't have very many books, so this program would really help me to access books.

Strengths: It first solves the problem of cost of buying physical books. It also saves times with leveling books. It would allow me to assign reading to my whole class at their own level. It would also allow me to asses them immediately.

Suggestions for Improvement: None at this time.

Verdict: I would have access to more books and be able to assign different levels to different students, as well as being able to assess them.
