Odyl Has New Book Discovery App Called Riffle

Odyl, a New York-based company that works with publishers to create Facebook campaigns for books, has built a new social discovery tool for books called Riffle.

Riffle, which is currently in beta, lets readers share and discover books with friends. Though details about the tool are limited, the website has sign-up details: “Riffle is about books. Get inspired and read more.” To get an invite, follow this link.
