I was reading the PBS Newsletter before and saw that they mentioned a new feature where you could see the list of the most traveled books as well as the ones that are currently available.  I think it's pretty neat to see how far some of these books traveled.  My own most traveled book has only gone through 6 swaps, which I thought was pretty good until I saw the all-time one at 15 swaps.

What does everyone else think of this new feature? :-)

It makes me wonder what the average number of times is that a paperback can be read before it reaches the end of its usable (or postable) life.

I think it's interested that if you order from the screen you're bypassing FIFO and getting that specific copy.

Where do we find the list?

Nevermind.  Found it under Search.

I like it.

I bet some books have traveled more then is tracked, like if they were free as part of a deal then reposted it would look like a new list.

I'm a stat kinda person so when I send my books to my sister(also a member), I still try to do it within the system just so keep the path the book took still shows.

On more popular titles I have my friends at work read it before I repost it so often there have been 4 or 5 additional visits my books took that's not trackable.

I'm off to check how my swaps have done. I love when a book travels from one side of the US and back again.
