At least one a week when Im not ordering anything but WL books. I stop ordering from january to june every year to try to cut down on books. When Im ordering from FIFO I get several a week. I just got two today.

It comes in spurts.  sometimes I get 2 in a day and then a week will go by before I get anything else!  I may have to buy some books to earn some credits for books I'm getting to #1 on the WL!  ;D

I receive packages several times a week usually as I have been collecting a prolific series for my children. I am pretty much down to WL books which haven't been popping up much for me so I imagine my mail will decline once I have received the last 2 that are on the way to me.

I just went and checked my transaction archive and it averages to 7 books a month.  However, that's not including the freebies from the BB, which, of course, aren't listed in the transaction archive, so I'm going to guess the average, so far, is 9 a month, so about 2 a week.

sometimes weekly, sometimes monthly....with my TBR pile over 350 I am only ordering WL books and trying to read faster and post more WL books to make rooms for more books for me!

Well I used to get a few a week between BOBS, orders, WL offers and games.  But I had my account on hold fo ra while and didn't get any for a few months.  Now I have about 16 on their way to me.  I had worked my way up to #1 on a bunch of WL books while I was on hold.

I get anywhere from 1-3 a day depending on how many swaps I'm in or how much reading time I actually have.

About 5 per month, depending on how my WL is doing. I'm not ordering FIFO right now, I'm trying to cut down my TBR pile so it's just what WL books come to me :)
