BookShout, a social reading and book retail application, has launched a new integration feature that allows anyone on Facebook to see BookShout members’ book lists and to preview books available through the BookShout store. Using BookShout’s new “look inside” Facebook integration feature, Facebook members can share their reading lists regardless of where the e-books were purchased.
BookShout’s integration with Facebook also lets users preview a book directly from a friend’s newsfeed. The integration with Facebook is available now on the Web, and support for iOS and Android will be available shortly.
Jason Illian, CEO and founder of BookShout, said the new feature “not only adds value for readers, but also delivers new sales channels for publishers and authors.”
