2018 Alphabet Challenge Completion

2018 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge
is hosted by Lori at Escape With DollyCas Into a Good Book.
I'm not sure I actually posted to the group but I had it in mind. :-)

As I started the year I set my goal at 2 titles per letter but was hoping to get to 4!
I just squeaked in the 2nd book for X so I met my goal.
I did get 4 books read for eight letters and 3 books for fifteen letters.
I only read two books for the letters J, X and Y.
I read a total of 83 books toward this challenge.
Audio TBR titles: Completed 26
NetGalley: Completed 25 titles: 20 TBR and 5 2018
ebook TBR titles: Completed only 9
2018 titles other than NetGalley: Completed 23: 18 audio, 4 ebooks and 1 print.

The reading pattern clearly shows I need to work on my eBook TBRs so I am going to make sure I read those better in 2019.

My Stated Goal:
For the Challenge My Goal is to read 2 books per letter: First a TBR Audio and Second a TBR eBook or print book.
As a bonus I hope to read a NetGalley title for each letter.
I also have 21 NetGalley titles slated that are TBR and a handful that have been received the first weeks of 2018 so will not be TBRs.
The fourth book is to be a 2018 book either purchased or free.
