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.
