Who we are:

Billed as the ‘Spotify for Textbooks’, Perlego is a learning eBook subscription that gives users unlimited access to over 200,000+ professional and academic titles, for less than the price of a single book.

Our mission is to make education content more accessible and affordable and become the ‘world’s online learning library’ - In this digital age, we believe that anyone should be able to learn anything at any time. Knowledge should be more accessible, not locked behind sky-high price tags and tuition fees. Perlego is democratising education and is to textbooks what Spotify is to music and Netflix is to movies.
