@Aldi80s We don't have a tutorial yet, unfortunately! But you can add books by searching for the title and author, and if it isn't available, there's a link at the bottom of the search page to "Manually add book" -- the page is bookwyrm.social/create-book or /create-book on any instance

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:


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

@bremner It's not just you -- it's running slow. There are some caching changes in progress, as well as profiling the source of the performance issues. Sorry about that!

Was not expecting to see an end-of-year review feature on a Fediverse site but @bookwyrm did it. This is actually really cool.

It's been a long year but at least we have books! Check out your reading recap on BookWyrm:


Filter your updates feed -- BookWyrm now lets you select what kind of statuses you want to see on your timeline

@loweel @critical @FediFollows we've been federating with mastodon since day one :)

We have users federating with pleroma as well, and because it's activitypub, in theory other platforms, but those are the two that have been tested

and now BookWyrm is also available in Galician! Shoutout to @xosem for getting to 100% coverage

Pois xa estaría @bookwyrm en #galego.

Xa me dixeron que a incluían na vindeira actualización.

Vou ver se atopo os fallos antes de que a publiquen, que os haberá, e axuda a que a xente se anime a compartir a súas lecturas.
