Is there a way to know how many times a book  has been swapped or the last time it was swapped?

Yup.  Take a look at your TBR.  See that little footprint?  Click on it.  It will tell you how many miles your book has traveled.

Oops!  I guess it's on your bookshelf not the TBR..  There is a littlel footprint in a red circle.  Of course, only books that you received through PBS will have a footprint.

Oh.  Yeah, I'm not sure there is a place for that sort of info.  I usually look for recent publication dates when I place something on my WL.  Of course, some books never get republished but for many authors, books that were first published in the 60s, 70s, and 80s, are now being republished as "classics". Hmph.  Whatever. I just find that more recent books tend to be in better condition, but not always.

It is also on your Transaction Archive.  That's neat because you can sort that list several kinds of ways.

ETA there is also the:

Most Swapped Books That Are Available

which you can find under the Search tab.

If you go to someone else's book shelf, you can see the "passport". 

Some of the books will have a Book Last Posted note when they are on your WL.  But not all.
