Just looked and a couple of my books have been to 5 people before they got to me, and they are still in great condition. What's the most people a book you have/had has gone through before it got to you?

Interestingly enough, PBS tracks the most traded copies of books. I take a peek every once in a while. I think I saw one once that had gone thru 12 poeple.

I have one in my TBR pile that I am the 11th owner of.  The book is still in good condition, but the spine is starting to feel a little delicate ^_^
