Is there any way to see when a book was last traded, thus giving a small bit of insight as to how often a book goes through the system? Thanks.

I apologize for this being posted three times, there was a problem with my browser I think. Please also give users the ability to delete and modify their own posts. Thanks.

Not yet, although it was something R&R hinted at as a possible future feature.

 

You can go into a post you have made and by clicking "Edit" delete the body of a post, but not the subject heading.

I'm actually looking forward to that feature too....I think it will be fun.  I'm most interested to see how many times the book has been traded and how many miles it's traveled.

Cindy, I would think that it would be tracked with the "Repost book" option. That would indicate that it's the same book that a person received that is going back out.

I'm more interested in how often a title gets traded so I know better what the likelihood that my place in line will keep moving towards 1. If it wasn't traded since January of this year and I'm in 50th place I'd be more inclined to find the book elsewhere.
