Simon & Schuster Unveils Facebook App

Yesterday Simon & Schuster launched Book Battle, a Facebook app focused on literary duels.

As you can see by the screenshot embedded above, readers can simply vote on match-ups between Simon & Schuster books. If you want to explore more apps, check out our 20 Facebook Apps for Book Lovers list.

Here’s more about the Book Battle Facebook app:  “The inaugural match-ups for Book Battle will feature bestselling author Cassandra Clare’s wildly popular MORTAL INSTRUMENTS and INFERNAL DEVICES series. Fans will be asked to vote for their favorite of the two series, express preferences for key characters and which character they would most like to take to the prom.  Other match-ups at launch will feature the UGLIES series by Scott Westerfield and the NIGHT WORLD series by L.J. Smith.”
