I need a bookmark design that i would print and promote ziurkes.group.lt/ BookWyrm instance by adding to the books I swap. If you are looking for a gig - let me know. #fedihelp

You can now add links to books to show fellow readers where those books can be obtained! Examples are links to free electronic versions as well as bookstore pages.

Loving @bookwyrm so far - the import from goodreads functionality is so handy. My sister in-law just asked if I knew of any Goodreads alternatives that don't give Bezos any money and I said "funny you should ask..." highly recommended!

If you love books, the best part of the Fediverse is probably @bookwyrm, a GoodReads-style social reading network.

More info and sites to sign up on are at:

joinbookwyrm.com

Because it uses the same ActivityPub protocol that powers the rest of the Fediverse, you can follow BookWyrm accounts from Mastodon etc.

For example, the lead developer of BookWyrm has an account at @mouse
