Thanks to @sean for writing this amazing review through his We Distribute @blog

We really appreciate it and loved to read it!

Check it out here:

If you're excited about BookWyrm development and have the means, consider supporting it on Patreon!

Your support goes a long way to making development sustainable.

@sergeantcat If ISBN is present in the data, it might be worth re-trying to books that failed before going to the trouble of manually adding them

@sergeantcat Do the books have isbns? Siddhartha seems like it should be find-able

We're rolling out a new timeline! The books timeline will show public status updates about your books from all over the BookWyrm network. You can still see local updates in your "Discover" page, which is designed to emphasize the hyper-local community on each instance.

BookWyrm is a Fediverse alternative to GoodReads.

They've just opened their onboarding site at:

("Onboarding" is when you make it as easy as possible for people to join something.)

BookWyrm and its instances are currently still in beta testing, but you can join now if you want to try it out. Instances marked as "closed" mean you can join but you have to request an invitation.

#FediTips #Fediverse #GoodReads #BookWyrm

We now have a "Join BookWyrm" page that you can show your friends and where they'll be able to see what the project is about and also find the list of instances so that they can choose which one to join!

@drbjork Unfortunately there's no way currently other than adding a version to Open Library and import that. There's an issue though:

@mike_hales You mean posting that you have read a book in the past?
On the book's page, you can click on the little arrow next to "Want to read" and select "Finish reading".

There's no such thing as a user guide yet unfortunately.
