@sciapode@indieweb.social @luka You can do CSV import and also integrated search. When you search for a book, if it isn't found in the local database, the site checks Open Library and Inventaire, as well as other bookwyrm instances.

@luka @sciapode@indieweb.social we do support Open Library! That's the source of many of the books

📚 It's a delight to have new folks coming into BookWyrm and the Fediverse!

BookWyrm boosted

Invites to bookwyrm.social are going out in batches now! Thank you to everyone who requested one for your interest and your patience

@noisydeadlines You can re-try items that didn't import in your original CSV import, that can often get books that timed out the first time. Usually books with ISBNs are available on OpenLibrary or inventaire and can be imported, but non-English-language coverage isn't as good.

@noisydeadlines Yes, they will available to anyone!

Did the books that didn't import have ISBNs? It may be that some of them failed because of transient errors and could still be imported

And you can alwyas contribute to BookWyrm's ongoing development on Patreon or OpenCollective. Even a small amount makes a big difference!
