Federation allows BookWyrm users to join small, trusted communities that can connect with one another, and with other ActivityPub services like Mastodon and Pleroma.

It now has a few instances that you can join and get going with. It is an open source application that you can self-host and federate across the Fediverse as well as other Bookwrym instances. So you can even host something like this for your own book club and then view a local feed as well as a federated feed.

Although it has been around a bit, there are now finally instances open for joining.

See https://joinbookwyrm.com/

So it’s basically a federated version of Goodreads? Sounds cool!

I don’t know Goodreads, but I like the idea of BookWyrm 😊
