I made some new kinds of charts to show trends better.

The charts below are 30-day moving totals of mooches per month (30,000/month), new books per month (25,000/month), and new members per month (2500/month).

What these tell me is that I need to do more to get more members and books, since the mooches per month is growing quickly (28% growth per month) but the other two metrics have linear growth. Things are going well, but I’d rather that the growth rate also be increasing to keep up with the increasing mooch rate.

My plan is to have this kind of chart built into the charts page.
