Collection Count

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

Last week I suggested there might be a trickle of releases each week for the rest of the year, although I did also note I had four new releases on the way plus two packages stuck at an Australian airport. Well, all of those titles turned up throughout this week, plus a couple of packages from America, making for a bumper 13 additions — once again, not quite a record, but certainly more than a trickle! And with some upgrades and whatnot amongst them, this week sees changes to every category tracked below. The last time that happened was only two months ago, but it's not a regular occurence.

Number of titles in collection: 2,716 [up 11]
Of which DVDs: 1,059 [down 2]
Of which Blu-rays: 1,657 [up 13]
— of which Ultra HD Blu-rays: 132 [up 1]

Number of discs in collection: 6,802 [up 21]
Number of films: 3,183 [up 17]
Number of additional cuts: 241 [up 4]
Number of TV episodes: 9,119 [up 4]
Number of short films: 891 [up 1]

Nonetheless, I do think it'll be back to a trickle from now on. Some weeks will be busier than others, but I'm going to try extra hard to avoid sales and random purchases and just stick to new titles. Though, with quite a few US releases included among those new titles, and the unpredictability of international shipping, they may end up arriving in clumps anyway — just like this week. Time will tell...

See you next week, faithful reader.
