Collection Count

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

I was going to say it had been a fairly quiet month for my collection, but then I realised I had nine titles turn up in a single week just a fortnight ago — that's a fairly large pile for a single week by almost any standard. But around that, there were zero additions the week before it and just one last week, and this week there's only two. Still, that's a fairly steady amount, all things considered.

I'm reflecting on the whole month like this because it's that time again: the monthly running time update. Exciting days.

Number of titles in collection: 2,603 [up 2]
Of which DVDs: 1,073 [no change]
Of which Blu-rays: 1,530 [up 2]
— of which Ultra HD Blu-rays: 102 [no change]

Number of discs in collection: 6,600 [up 2]
Number of films: 3,030 [up 2]
Number of additional cuts: 221 [no change]
Number of TV episodes: 9,075 [no change]
Number of short films: 867 [no change]

Total running time of collection (approx.):
477 days, 22 hours, and 56 minutes.
(Up 1 day, 9 hours, and 15 minutes from last month.)

See you next week, faithful reader.
