I've had a Kobo for about two weeks, and have sort of been off-handedly tracking the
number of titles available when I enter through the Chapters ebook listing.

I'm assuming this doesn't include any of the public-domain free books as we're well below
2 million...

Aug 7th : 71,038
Aug 11 : 72,426
Aug 14 : 73,431

And as of right now...

Aug 18 : 73,475

So while it's not an astounding number, it's certainly still a whole lot of books.
I was initially expecting it to be much higher but I imagine that all booksellers partake in some creative accounting to get their advertised book-count up.

It's also nice to see that nearly 2500 titles were added in the 11 days since I started.
And again, these are only the numbers available to me, as a resident of Canada, when entering through the Chapters "eBooks by Kobo" link/portal/whatever.
