Touch Kobo Touch Reading Life Awards (possible spoilers)
#1  Xennex1170 10-29-2011, 05:22 AM
It's frustrating to go searching for a comprehensive list of Reading Life Awards for the Kobo Touch.. Thought a Thread that lists the ones confirmed by those here would be helpful.. To Start I have the following:
1)Welcome to Reading Life (I guess everyone gets this one for simply turning your KT on).
2)BookLover (grayed out) (This is the one with the bug, supposed to be awarded when you first log into your Kobo account from the KT)
3)I <3 My Library (Just add a few books to your KT)
4)Once Upon a Time (Start reading any ebook)
5)Not an Open Book (Finish one ebook)
6)Pressed for Details (Learn how to do the Long press for ebook info)
7)Scout Leader (Get 10 Reading Life Awards)
8)Highly Decorated (Get 10 Reading Life Awards)
9)Night Rider (Read for about 3-4 hours past midnight?)
10)Word Up! (Look up definitions for 10 words)
11)Juggernaut (only 29% right now)(Make 10k page turns)
12)Afternoon Rush Hour (Read 5 times between 4pm-6pm)
13)Happy Hour (Read 5 times between 6pm-8pm)
14)Primetime (Read 5 times between 8pm-10pm)
15)Better in Bed (Read 5 times between 10pm-12am)
16)Witching Hour (Read 5 times between 12am-1am)
17)Graveyard Shift (Read 5 times between 1am-5am)
18)I Eat Books for Lunch (Read 5 times between 12pm-2pm)
19)Playing Hooky (Read 5 times between 2pm-4pm)
20)All You Can Eat (Load lots of books into your KT main memory or SD card)(Personally I have over 1900 ebooks on mine but I think a 100 or two should be enough)
21)Facebook (Awarded when you first log into Facebook from your KT)
22)Inverted Comma (Awarded when you highlight your first passage)
23)Papillon (Awarded when you post to Facebook 10 times)

Anyone got any others? I suspect there may be an award or 2 for the time period between 5am-12pm.

I also have Page Turner, 'Clearly you couldn't put that book down! You read for two hours straight!', and Sleeping In, 'We know you didn't hit the snooze button! You read 5 times between 9am and 12pm'.

Page Turner - read 2 hrs straight
Eat It - read 5 times between 5 a.m. and 7 a.m.
Kill the Commute - read 5 times between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m.
Sleeping In - read 5 times between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m.

There are some newspaper and magazine awards too. All the awards are listed on http://www.kobobooks.com/readinglife#section:earnAwards but they don't necessarily say how to get them. I really want that Time Lord one!

Oh, ok, 2 more I can try for.. Though I could have sworn I've read for more than 2 hours in one sitting before.. Does it have to be a single book?

Ah, and yet 2 more.. I'll have to wake up earlier and use my KT. At least for a week.. I have heard that some awards are not available for KT and only show up on the iOS or Android Apps..

And I had 60% of Juggernaut but when I sent my Kobo Touch for replacement all the partly achieved awards where wiped clean

And yes, to get page turner you have to read nonstop for two hours (I.E No Sleep, no changing books, and with some books no dictionary)

Do we know which ones are for iOS or Android only?

I think "Free-loader" is an App award only. Because I downloaded 10 classics and it didn't work.

I don't have any devices that use either OS so I can't say.. Anyone able to build a list of OS specific available awards?
