My first thought was 'why aren't these Reading Life awards?' It seems so obvious. But then I realised that there could be practical issues with creating such awards - do you issue them only for the first book a reader reaches the quarter and half way stages on and then, perhaps, only issue notifications for subsequent books? Not sure. However, the 'Once Upon A Time' award for finishing a book is in similar territory.
Ah, those aren't awards but simply progress notifications – you'll get them whenever you hit 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% for the first time for each book. You can go back and see them on your Activity page under Reading Life.
