Hello everyone . . . first time asking a question here, I hope it hasn't already been asked.

Is there a way to access a daily or monthly listing of:


Most popular books posted?

Most popular books swapped?

I would really be curious about what TYPE of books are actively being swapped.  The Top Ten, for instance. The number one authors that get the most activity, that sort of thing.I think it would help with me making decisions about what books to list and even more importantly what books to let go to Goodwill because they are very likely to never  be requested.

I really enjoy PBS and have had a number of very successful swaps of books to add to my permanent library!

Cheers,

Laura

Top of the page go to Community.  Down about the middle it has Top 50's.  That's the top 50 Swappers, Posted books, Requested Books, Wished for Books and Referrals.

Welcome to the forums, you'll love it here!

I have never looked at that before.  I have 2 of the top 50 most posted books in my TBR pile.  Yikes!  Maybe I should post them now.  It'll take years for them to reach the top of the FIFO line.  No wonder someone jumped at the chance to do a BOB with me on them.

To get what I did above (the words "link" as a hyperlink) you just copy and paste the url into the reply box.  The site does the work for you.

If you want other words to say link (say "Top 50") you type in your words, highlight them, click the "Insert/Edit Link" button above the text box, and then paste the url into the field.  And get this: Top 50

It's really very simple -- no programming knowledge involved!

I haven't looked at that in a long time...I guess I can take my time reading The Host by Stephenie Meyer...I have the HC copy and since there's over 900 people wishing, I should be able to unload it when I'm done. LOL
