These days it seems that most folks own purely digital libraries for their books and movies.

So, share with us how many (if any) do you physically own?

Good lord, trying to physically take a count of every single film and book/novel I own would be nearly impossible. To try to paint a visual picture for you of just why I say that, I have four book shelves that are stocked with books with several that don't even fit and have to sit on other shelves, tables or counters with free space.

Movie-wise, it'd be a similar situation. I could try to actually count them if people are genuinely curious.

Haha no need to count them up that gives a general idea. If you find yourself in a spot where you want to count them for some reason, feel free to share 😜

We have shelves, book cases, boxes and tubs galore, filled with books and movies. The amount of books alone that we have, would easily be used to start out a small library that just opened, and needs a full isle of books to fill it's shelves. With movies, we easily have a good 700 movies between vhs and DVD that we own physical copies of.

Wow, do you still own a VHS player to play those movies?

Yeah. It is hard to find a store that still carries a VHS player in good or new condition though, as there are not many people are left that haven't converted or thrown away their VHS tapes.
It would be nice to find one that still works I think for some movies that maybe haven't been changed over. However, I think the digitalization of a lot of the older movies has been taking place so the desire to maintain and have VHS' has been going away. I am actually impressed that there are so many DVD's/BluRay's still being released in stores. So that tells me there is still plenty of demand for physical media.

No, our Tech. I already have them listed on a spreadsheet!

We have so many books & DVDs (even VHS tapes) that if we donated them all to a local library, it'd easily fit a wall or so of shelves.

I am not sure how many books that I own but I am currently getting rid of some of the series that I have outgrown and the last time that I counted my DVD list I had over 500 DVDs but that was three or four years ago so I've gotten more since then. I am going to count them once in my apartment with my husband as I put them back onto shelf in alphabetic order since I find it easier to find them that way but I know for sure that I have close to 30 Blu-Rays.

Wow that's crazy, be sure to let us know too whenever you are able to move.

We fit our collection in our house by having dedicated shelves to them.
