Our readers have reached an incredible milestone today.

1 million page flips on Bubblin.

That’s 1,000,000 pages of world-class English literature inciting joy, excitement, and self-reflection. A million page turns revealing a corpus of extraordinary stories from around the world, immersive animations, and deep learning.

So, what exactly is a “page turn” or “flip” on Bubblin?

Go ahead, give it a try over here.

And here’s another from an animated book of ABCs.

Cool, right? We think so too! 🥳

How do we measure page turns?

A turn is counted only when the page comes to a state of rest from the turning animation. This ensures that we only count flips when someone is actually engaging with the content on the page. If you open a Bubblin Superbook and quickly flip through 20 pages, we’ll count that as a single page turn.

At Bubblin, we spend countless hours studying the art and science of book-making. Paper books are a masterclass in user experience design, and we intend to bring a similar level of care and thoughtful design to the online reading experience.

We’re on a mission to make digital books enjoyable to read and accessible to everyone via the open web.

We hope you’ll join us on this journey and help us accelerate towards the next goal - 10,000,000 flips.
