I'd love to know how many times some of the WL books get traded?

Yes!  If you look at any of your Transaction Archive or TBR books and hover over the little footprint icon next to it click on it and a screen will come up telling you how many times, where, when and how far that book has gone while in the PBS system!  I've spent lots of time doing that - it's fun!

It only works if the book stays on your TBR list then gets reposted.  If, like me, you don't keep books on the TBR list it breaks the chain.

Bernhard -- Hmmmm, I never put books on my TBR list, but when I relist them, they show up as where they have been. We must be doing something differently, because my books do stay in the chain.

Well, now I'll have to test this out Sally.  I very rarely repost books (I'm a "keeper" when it comes to most books) but there have been one or two that I've requested, didn't like, then reposted.

Aha... my bad.  It's not the TBR list that does it, it's the option to put the book on your shelf (on hold) when you mark it received.  I don't do that either since I seldom repost books.
