Collection Count

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

Some solid increases this week. It would've been more, but I was forgetting that TheHut-owned sites such as Sendit and Zavvi are untrustworthy when it comes to sending out items complete or as advertised, so there's a number of returns to make. They're also not top of the pile when it comes to sending out pre-orders, so a few things to wait for there too.

Best of all, though, is the number of titles in my collection. In case you need it spelling out: one, two, three, four...

Number of titles in collection: 1,234 [up 7]
Of which DVDs: 1,102 [up 1]
Of which Blu-rays: 132 [up 6]

Number of discs in collection: 3,023 [up 15]
Number of films in collection: 1,304 [up 8]
Number of TV episodes in collection: 4,290 [up 10]

Statistic of the week:

Number of titles produced in the '00s:
(53.8% of the total)

After the look-how-far-I've-come first anniversary list of stats a fortnight ago, I've been curious about how a few other early Statistics of the Week have changed in the past year. So, over the next few weeks, I'll be picking up on some I've done before.

First is the first, number of titles produced in the '00s, which was at 589 titles (or 55.3% of my collection) back on 30th October 2009. The total has increased (by 12.7%), but how large a part of my collection they are is down (by 1.5%). Clearly I've bought more older films this year, though with the '10s now in the equation for the newest releases I should imagine it will only sink further in future.

See you next week, faithful reader.
