Helpful Hints
Booktastic Books are sold at the Booktastic Book Shop and count towards the number of Booktastic Books your pet has read.

Click the title of a book to open a Shop Wizard search for that item.

Remember if you don't have access to the Super Shop Wizard to refresh the Shop Wizard results to ensure you get the best possible deal on a book.

Users often have multiple copies of cheap books in stock because they're easy to get from Dailies. Stock up on these multiple cheap books so you can read them to all of your pets and save time visiting fewer shops. Don't forget about those pets on your side accounts.

If your pet has high enough intelligence, this may increase its value in terms of pet trading.

Refusing to Read a book
Sometimes your pet will refuse to read a book. It has something to do with the number of letters in the name of the book and the number of letters in the name of your pet. It's a simple fix - just change the language you're browsing the site in. Usually French or Spanish will work, but if they don't, try one of the Asian languages. Keep trying a different language until your pet reads the book.

Loyal User Perk
If your account is older than 24 months, there's a chance that a book won't disappear after you read it to a pet. This is great because you can then read it to another pet for free!

Book Smarts Boon
If you fight for the victorious side during a skirmish at the Battleground of the Obelisk, you will be rewarded with your choice of boon, one of which is called Book Smarts. The Book Smarts Boon - available for the Seekers faction and randomly for the Awakened faction - will give your pet two to four intelligence points instead of one each time they read a book. This boon lasts for the week-long truce between skirmishes, making that week a great time to increase your pet's intelligence for cheap!
