Right now it appears that a year ago the average was more like 300 books a day and today it's about 500 books a day, but it could turn out over the next couple of years to be a linear trend that averages 400 books a day. You just never know for sure.
Excellent observation.

Thanks, again, for keeping tabs on it.
