So it appears to be 82/203 or approximately 40% for the last batch. This makes a grand total of 265/713 or just over 37% as of today.  The drama is actually harder to count precisely, but was around 150 items.  Certainly if I add in the books in boxes (and by/under the bed) this pushes the literature well over 1000.  So I still have some slimming down to do.
