My BOB subscription ends this month, and I'm undecided as to whether I'm going to renew or not.  My question is: if I choose not to renew at this time, but renew at a later date, do I keep my current feedback or do I lose it all?

I was wondering this too... Anybody done this? I haven't really been using my BOB membership at all this year, but I would renew to keep from losing my positive "track record", as that's one of the things I look for myself when deciding who to do a BOB trade with. I do have plans to start using it again... eventually. (I just want to reduce my TBR mountain a bit first...)

I have let my BOB expire and then renewed it later, but I can't remember if my old feedback was there or not.

You keep your feedback, as I did recently did the same thing after a short lapse... I just couldn't pass up a good deal! LOL

I had let mine lapse for quite awhile and all my feedback history is there in my BOB history. I think it follows the account Sheryl, so you will retain your record when you decide to re-up.

Thanks Richard and Cheryl.  You are correct.  I asked the Team (after no one seemed to know) and received the following reply:


The feedback and your past transaction lists will stay with your account, and they'll be available whenever you rejoin the Box-O-Books program.

That's good to know as I plan on rejoining Box of Books at some point.  Once I get caught up on my TBR (haha-as if that's possible!).  Anyway, once I get enough books read to have a decent shelf for boxing, I'll do it again to get some of my reminder list books.
