How Accelerated Reader Bookfinder Works

One common way to use Accelerated Reader Bookfinder is to follow these steps:

  1. Search for book titles.
  2. Add titles to your AR BookBag.
  3. Print the contents (book titles) of your AR BookBag to take with you as a reference when visiting a library or bookshop.

The AR BookBag in Accelerated Reader Bookfinder is a temporary holder, similar to a "shopping cart". You can add or remove book titles in the AR BookBag, and you can print the contents (book titles).


Like Accelerated Reader Bookguide, Accelerated Reader Bookfinder includes two types of searches:

Teacher List

You can designate the lists that you create in Accelerated Reader Bookguide as Teacher Lists. These lists can be viewed by parents, guardians and students in Accelerated Reader Bookfinder if they enter your keycode. The keycode is automatically generated by Accelerated Reader Bookguide, and there is one keycode for each account.

The keycode is printed on the Informational Letter. Teachers print the Informational Letter in Accelerated Reader Bookguide and send it home with their students to share with parents or guardians.

You can also view the keycode in the Personal Preferences when you edit the Accelerated Reader Bookfinder preferences. In those preferences, you can also choose whether book ownership will be shown to parents, guardians and students in Accelerated Reader Bookfinder.

In Accelerated Reader Bookfinder, users enter the keycode to the left of the Quick Search tab and select Go. They can then see the Teacher Lists tab, which lists the Teacher Lists from Accelerated Reader Bookguide, and they can select a Teacher List to open it.
