Hi! I know when I mail out a book,  and the book is received, I can follow the path of the book "footprint" After the person who received my book, gets the book and mails it on, is it possible for that to become part of the footprint?  Can I follow the books path after it leaves me? Just out of curiousity.

Yes, it will keep track of the city and the state the book goes if the receivers send it on.

Some of my books have gone to 4 people. Although most don't seem to get traded again.

You can follow them via your transaction archive. 

I think it's interesting to see where they go, too.  I had one book that just riccocheted between Brooklyn and Washington State several times.

Next to the ISBN there is a red circle with blue in it. Click on that and it will show you where the book has been and how many miles it has traveled.
