Collection Count

Collection Count tracks my DVD/Blu-ray collection via a number of statistics every week.

As if last week's jump wasn't enough, here's one that's even bigger (in some regards, anyway). Hurrah! Should begin to quieten down again now though. These things cost money y'know.

Number of titles in collection: 1,217 [up 10]
Of which DVDs: 1,109 [up 4]
Of which Blu-rays: 108 [up 6]

Number of discs in collection: 2,975 [up 16]
Number of films in collection: 1,276 [up 11]
Number of TV episodes in collection: 4,205 [up 10]

Statistic of the week:

Number of titles in the 'Thriller' genre:
(14.6% of the total)

'Thriller' is my second-largest genre. (I've previously covered the largest, Drama, and two of the smallest, Anime and Music. Incidentally, the once-king 'Action' has slipped all the way to fourth. Maybe I grew up or something.) With several new titles supplementing Thriller's ranks this week, it seemed as good a time as any to highlight it.

See you next week, faithful reader.
