WON - Guess how many releases to the Oxford Convention OBCZ

As part of the lead up to the World BookCrossing Convention in Oxford UK I am offering a prize to the person who most closely guesses the total number of books that have been released to the Oxford Convention OBCZ as at the time I arrive at the Convention on Friday 10th April and am able to connect to the internet to check the number.

The winner will receive wings for themselves or a member of their choice, a book they choose from my available or TBR shelf for themselves or someone else, some labels and any other surprise goodies I may decide on.

You will have until 3rd April to make your guess. Each member can make one guess only. Entry should be by reply to this post and please check that the number you choose has not already been entered as only the first person entering it can win.

This is a link to the zone- http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/772634
( For the mathematically challenged there are 379 books released at the time of writing, 15 pages of 25 books and one page with 4 books)

ETA Well done Slipperbunny who guessed 1740 and was nearest to 1758.

Have fun at the convention!

Since someone already took my magic number (which was 1116), I will have to say: 1608.

Should give me a nice range of books to choose from for wild releasing during the rest of my UK trip.

So sorry, I didn't know it was your lucky number.

I don't know if it is my lucky number -- just my employee number at work that I put on everything. In fact, since it is associated with work, it is probably not lucky. Only thing lucky about work at the moment is that I will soon be done with it for 2 whole weeks while I head across the pond.
