The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
Pages 1–41

I normally prefer to log books by chapter numbers, as page numbers can vary between editions, but sometimes books just don’t have chapters. The Midnight Library does... sort of. They’re not numbered, only named, and it looks like most are only a page or two long (there are 14 in these first 41 pages alone), so numbering them myself doesn't seem much use. So, page count it is.

Collection Count

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

This week's three adds come courtest of Arrow's ongoing Easter sale. And talking of sales, next week should see the arrival of a big pile of purchases from Criterion's 2-for-£25 (which ends this weekend, hence the big last-minute grab).

Number of titles in collection: 2,570 [up 3]
Of which DVDs: 1,075 [no change]
Of which Blu-rays: 1,495 [up 3]
— of which Ultra HD Blu-rays: 97 [no change]

Number of discs in collection: 6,546 [up 3]
Number of films: 2,985 [up 4]
Number of additional cuts: 216 [up 1]
Number of TV episodes: 9,052 [no change]
Number of short films: 848 [no change]

See you next week, faithful reader.
