Reading life question

I'll have to exchange my Kobo Touch for a new/refurbished one, and was wondering if my reading life Stats and Awards will be saved when I sync my new KT? Some of the reading life things I don't need but I'm 50% done the juggernaut award, so I want to keep that one.



P.S I never realized how much I actually read untill I got the KT with reading stats, 60 hours and 4100 page turns since Sept 5

As far as I know the stats and awards are kept on the Kobobooks server so they should reappear in your new Kobo.

Only, of course, up to the point that the OP last synched his Touch

Yes. Otherwise it would be just plain creepy

Your awards will carry-over....but I don't thing your stats will. I had to do a factory reset of my KT a while back and lost all my reading stats. Everything was set back to zero and I had definitely synced the KT a number of times before I had the problem.

I had the exact same experience with a factory reset. If you had partial awards (like 62% of the way to Juggernaut, or 80% of Witching Hour), that progress will likely be lost.

Mine wasn't - I did countless resets with the firmware bug and my partial awards were always retained. But I also use kobo for android so perhaps that is part of the reason they were retained.

Your awards progress should stay, but your stats will be gone. I managed to accidentally delete the Kobo app from my iPad, and upon reinstalling, all of my stats had returned to zero, but all my awards were exactly the same.
