I am wondering how many posted books is to many.  How many pages of a swappers shelf will you look through before you get tired or bored with it?

I personally looked at 440 books last night, the member was doing a special.

I usually will look at them all and just sort to find the ones I want, hope this helps.

I usually search by genre or author, but even then I have no limit to how many pages I'll look through.  You never know when you might find a title you never would have picked up before.

Although I will filter or search for certain authors or subject matters when there are many hundreds of books on a member's Bookshelf, generally if there are no more than 150 to 200 books on the whole bookshelf I will go through the complete list.  If there are 400 + books on someone's bookshelf then I will do the subject search or author search only.

Hope this helps.

I usually won't look through more than a couple pages unless the person is running a deal that I want to take advantage of.
