Guessing Game

Well everyone, I´ve been cataloging away for three weeks now – two weeks to go! As I neared 600 books today, I had a brainstorm: why not let you all in on the fun by guessing how many books I´ll catalog before I go?

The person with the closest guess gets an authentic, made-in-Guatemala souvenir (it´s a surprise! – because I haven´t bought it yet…)

Some facts (for those of you who want to make this a math problem – hee hee: good luck!)

1st week: ended with 232 books cataloged (there were about 140 already in, but I went through all those records to verify them and add more info).

2nd week: ended with 363 books

3rd week (today): ended with 616 books

The fine print:
Leave your guess as a comment.
Only one guess per person.
I´m not splitting up the prize, so if a number is taken, choose another (or it goes to the first person who picked the number).
I´m not going to share my progress anymore after this point so guess any time.
I´ll post the final number and winner on July 20th – so please post a guess by 4:00 p.m. Guatemala time on the 20th!

If I was truely playing the Price Is Right I would A) wait until the 20th and B)totally hem Bill in by guessing 999 or hem Ernie in by going for 1002.
However, my highly calculated guess is . . . 1176 total books.

1485 - a purely mathematical guess based on the average increase in your productivity per week, but excluding the books that were partially catalogued before you arrived.
