Expanding on Elizabeth's comments: In looking at the tracking info on Step 1 books, I observe the same thing. Moreover, it often appears to be the same individuals who repeatedly go through these steps eventually abandoning the book in question. I am curious as to why someone would repeatedly go through steps to continue control over a book and then abandon them? Is it frustration as to the quality of the book and a realization that the situation is hopeless and a red flag to the rest of us? If so, would it not make more sense to reject the book outright? I honestly am trying to understand this as perhaps I (and Elizabeth) may be missing something.
