Is there a way to see where else books have gone after you sent them to someone and they've sent them on?

Several of us here use a different site called bookcrossing.com that lets you track books and see what others thought of them.    The new owner has to journal them, but that is better to me than anything automated that tracks books through me without my directly approving this.

I was checking to see but, the footprint on the book in Transaction Archive only shows up to the point of where you sent it.

I have passport stamps that go beyond where I sent the book, but not many.  Mostly on books that I posted when I first joined (August/September).

It's kinda annoying to click on each book, but I don't know how else it could be programmed in.

it depends on if it was a popular book and has been sent on again.  I've checked the footprint and it started here, went somewhere else and then came back here!

I like looking to see where the book has been (if swapped several times here on PBS) or where it has gone
