Collection Count

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

This is the first post-Christmas update, and it was a relatively light haul this year (lots of books instead). Still, it did include the 31-disc Harry Potter Wizards Collection, and the large and awesome limited edition of Lawrence of Arabia. Both are instant centrepieces to a collection.

Also, the digibook re-release of Peter Jackson's King Kong (not replacing my old DVDs (at least not just yet) because I don't think it's even close to having all the extras); plus E.T. (which I'm moderately certain I've never seen) and the new release of A Trip to the Moon. Post Christmas purchases include Underworld: Awakening (it was only a fiver) and... other stuff that hasn't arrived.

All BDs except Trip to the Moon, and Lawrence replaces my old DVD, which you'll see reflected in these numbers...

Number of titles in collection: 1,521 [up 5]
Of which DVDs: 1,146 [no change]
Of which Blu-rays: 375 [up 5]

Number of discs in collection: 3,834 [up 36]
Number of films in collection: 1,600 [up 14]
Number of TV episodes in collection: 5,700 [no change]
Number of short films in collection: 374 [up 1]

And just to make it a bumper bonus of excitement, this week it's the regularly scheduled running time update too! As I'm not expecting anything on Monday, this also serves as an end-of-2012 update. Shiny.

So without further ado...

Total running time of collection (approx.):
276 days, 18 hours, and 57 minutes.
(Up 3 days, 14 hours, and 11 minutes from last month.)

That's a pretty big jump these days.Happy times.

See you next week, faithful reader.
