Hi! This is the official #Bookwyrm account. Bookwyrm is a federated reading platform (think Goodreads). Post about your reading and stuff! You can interact with Mastodon users and vice versa. We are going to toot development news and more.
List of instances https://docs.joinbookwyrm.com/instances.html
@Madmonkey I don't know if anyone tried so far, but someone runs their instance on a single core vps with 1GB RAM, so in theory it shoud work unless there's something with ARM!
@bookwyrm how do I add a new book? I just get an empty shelf and the search doesn't seem to find even modern books. Perhaps I am doing something wrong? I did look in the documentation but couldn't find anything (other than the list of instances)
@edgren So far it's Open Library, Inventaire.io and federated Bookwyrm instances (you can add books manually too).
@bookwyrm Alright. I created an account at Open Library earlier this day and added a book, but it doesn't show up at Bookwyrm 😅 How long time will it take before your database/something get syncronized with Open Library?
@bookwyrm Nevermind. I didn't choose "Load from other categories" or what that link now was called 😅 I found my book now.
@edgren Allright, but sometimes it takes a while until the book is available on Bookwyrm, it's probably that OL only rebuilds it's indices every now and then. Enjoy your book :)
@bookwyrm Hehe, ok. Thanks 🙂 But if I make an edit for the books I read that I have had to add to Open Library, will that edit eventually sync to Bookwyrm?
@edgren So far that does not happen. There is this open issue but I don't think it's going to come soon. https://github.com/bookwyrm-social/bookwyrm/issues/591
@bookwyrm I bet this could be easily repurposed for game reviews too, if an open game info database exists
@bookwyrm thanks, I already saw it in your webpage, guess theres no way to correct the pinned toot 😁
@bookwyrm wow, this seems really neat. I find it quite fun how all sorts of different things from Instagram to Twitter to Twitch now has replacements and they can all talk to each other, making this entire thing feel way more connected. I'll have to look into this one. Always been a massive reader but stayed clear of Goodreads for various reasons so far.

@bookwyrm Is there an easier way than downloading the RSS and finding the comment guid to interact with a BookWyrm user from a Mastodon instance?
