Also, yay for new awards hopefully coming soon. Though tbh, i'd be happy with cryptic hints as to how to earn some of the ones on the website that just say "spoiler alert".. Also, i'm not convinced they all work in the UK, unless someone can prove me wrong?

Missing Book Lover

I can't unlock the Book Lover award (of all things) for some reason. I have almost all of the other badges (including Juggernaut - yay!) and my KT says I'm logged in to my account, etc. I've had my KT for quite some time and never really noticed before now, so of course now that I've noticed it's driving me nuts! Any suggestions??

IIRC Book Lover is a glitched award that they haven't fixed .. you'd have to go back through the older posts, but I don't know if anyone has it

I'm not able to get lost in Austen, or Fanatic. I have 'read' both Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility, as well as 3 other books by Jane Austen. Are these bugs?
You need to read 5 Austin books. Or at least I think you do. I've read 3 and am 60% thru that one.

It can't be any issue of the required classics. I read Alice in Wonderland but it was the wrong one so it didn't count.....I read all 5 but there is something wrong somewhere and I am only ay 80%

Classic Attack: This is the list I'm going with.. (just Pride and Prejudice to go)
I've read all 5 and I am still one short......

Question

The one's i'm really struggling to get are the Fully Loaded.. i'm sure i side loaded some PDFs and ePUBs, and it didn't seem to trigger it. Do you need to side load a certain number of books? or is it just that i have the method wrong? Any ideas?!

Also, struggling to get the Classic Attack.. like a lot of others, it seems, i deleted the five classic books off my kobo, but having looked on here, i've redownloaded them and reread them all, and it will only give me 80% and so it won't give me the award! No idea what i'm doing wrong but i'd love sugestions!

Lastly (sorry, lots of questions, i'm new!), i'm from the UK.. i'm guessing that means that i can't get a few of the awards, as magazines and newspapers aren't available on kobo over here yet. Also, i couldn't find the dead reckoning book on kobo in the UK, or any of the pretty little liars books for the 4 associated awards..does anyone know if you can get these in the UK? or if some of these awards are limited to the US and Canada?
I'm habving the same problem with the classics. I had Alice in Wonderland. but it was thebwrong one. I read all 5 of the classics but can't get past 80%.

Thanks, PiersS. I'll hunt around and see if I can find a fix posted somewhere. In the meantime...

I've read 4 of the 5 from the link on the last page, but haven't gotten any % .. guess it's another Vox no-go

I have The kobo app on my ipad. Read all 5 on the list & made sure they were the correct ones...still don't have the award. Apparently there is one more classic out there somewhere.

The way to get the Keener Award (not that i have it, because i'm in the UK, so apparantly you can't get newspapers/magazines) is to:

open every issue of their magazine subscription on the day it is delivered for 5 consecutive issues.
