Oxfordian Mage Push--1 push or multiple pushes

Question

For the Oxfordian Mage's Elemental Bolt, there is a trigger on a tome to push the target up to 2" for each tome in the duel total.

For reference, the text reads: "Windblast: After succeeding, push target up to 2" for each tome in the duel total."

Based on the wording, is it one push that is up to 2*n, where N is the number of tomes?

Or, is it X "up to 2 inches" pushes, where X is the number of tomes?

A single push where the maximum distance is determined by the number of tomes in the duel total would be my bet. Things that grant multiple pushes tend to be really specific about it since the main drawback of pushes is that they are straight lines and so can be blocked.

When the designers want you to be able to go around stuff they use the word move instead of push.

Yeah, that sounds about right given design tendencies.

I thought the reason they may have done it as X pushes specifically because it would be less advantageous than a move, and it's a guaranteed push on your own models since it's after succeeding. Combined with the ability to get "free" tomes for extra distance, it seemed like it was an intentional balance to give multi directional pushes against having the pushes guarantee going through.
