Collection Count

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

After last week's busy-ness, it's back down to a more acceptable level this week... although I have so much stuff in the post or awaiting dispatch, if it all manages to turn up in the next 7 days then next week might be back up in record-breaker levels. Oh dear!

Well, for now, here's a reasonably-sized update — and, along with it, the first running time update of 2021...

Number of titles in collection: 2,526 [up 3]
Of which DVDs: 1,080 [no change]
Of which Blu-rays: 1,446 [up 3]
— of which Ultra HD Blu-rays: 96 [no change]

Number of discs in collection: 6,479 [up 4]
Number of films: 2,920 [up 3]
Number of additional cuts: 206 [up 1]
Number of TV episodes: 9,010 [no change]
Number of short films: 812 [up 1]

Total running time of collection (approx.):
468 days, 7 hours, and 57 minutes.
(Up 1 day, 17 hours, and 25 minutes from last month.)

See you next week, faithful reader.
