Created by students, for students

The idea for Perlego was born when our founders, Gauthier and Matt, were struggling with the cost of textbooks as students. From that first search for a more affordable alternative, Perlego has grown into a business that is breaking down the barriers to education for students globally.

The Student Room
'On my law course, I spent over £200 on textbooks in the first year…With Perlego I can read as many books as I want and it has proven invaluable during lockdown as I begin my dissertation research. This app has saved my academic career, no joke.'
'@perlegobooks thank you, thank you, thank you ❤️ I have just discovered your treasure trove and with no current university affiliation due to caring for my son, I was craving access to academic text. You have opened doors for me today!'
'Perlego’s changed my reading behaviour - with Amazon I needed to make sure the book was worth the money but now I can read new topics without needing to think about the cost. I’ve already read 6 or so books through Perlego, which I would not have done on Amazon.'
'I should also say that as a lecturer this software is a game-changer, and it will be an absolute lifeline to our students both here and around the world. Keep up this good and vital work'
