The Reading Goals feature allows you to set a specific amount of time you’d like to spend reading on your iPad each day, and it will keep track of the time for you. You can also set goals for the number of books you’d like to finish reading in a year.

This is how you use the Reading Goals feature on your iPad:

  1. Tap the Reading Now button in the lower-left on the iPad and then swipe down to the Reading Goals section.

    The section is divided into two parts: one for Today’s Reading and another for Books Read This Year.

  2. Tap the Today’s Reading area on your iPad to adjust your goal or to share your progress with a significant other.
  3. To adjust your reading goal time, tap the Adjust Goal button, scroll up or down to select a new time in the menu provided, and tap the screen outside of the menu to exit it.

    Tap the small X in the upper-right to return to the Reading Goals section.

  4. Tap the Books Read This Year area to adjust your goal or to share your progress.
  5. To adjust your goal for number of books read in a year, tap the Adjust Goal button, scroll up or down to select a number of books, and tap the screen outside of the menu to exit it.
  6. Tap the small X in the upper-right to return to the Reading Goals section.
