@bookwyrm Any ideas of from what database they fetch the books? Goodreads? OpenLibrary?

@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. github.com/bookwyrm-social/boo
