  • Papillon (Butterfly) : 10 Kobo shares on Facebook (I'm 0% trhough)

If there are other badges, those are cryptic ones
From my list below you are missing #1 & 18. Sort of odd since in the U.S. version you receive #1 when you first power on your Kobo.

These 27 are the ones I know are on the KT with their English names as they appear on my KT and how to achieve them:
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 20 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 32% right now)(Make 10k page turns)
12)Page Turner (read a book for 2hrs straight)
13)Afternoon Rush Hour (Read 5 times between 4pm-6pm)
14)Happy Hour (Read 5 times between 6pm-8pm)
15)Primetime (Read 5 times between 8pm-10pm)
16)Better in Bed (Read 5 times between 10pm-12am)
17)Witching Hour (Read 5 times between 12am-1am)
18)Graveyard Shift (Read 5 times between 1am-5am)
19)Eat It (Read 5 times between 5am-7am)
20)Kill the Commute (Read 5 times between 7am-9am)
21)Sleeping In (Read 5 times between 9am-12pm)
22)I Eat Books for Lunch (Read 5 times between 12pm-2pm)
23)Playing Hooky (Read 5 times between 2pm-4pm)
24)All You Can Eat (Load 40+ books into your KT main memory or SD card)
25)Facebook (Awarded when you first log into Facebook from your KT)
26)Inverted Comma (Awarded when you highlight your first passage)

Hmm.. Then what would be "Witching Hour"?

17)Witching Hour (Read 5 times between 12am-1am)
18)Graveyard Shift (Read 5 times between 1am-5am)

heure fatidique displays a witch so you're surely right... perhaps it's forbidden in France, according to DRM laws to read on my reader between 1AM and 5AM...

So I cheked one time more : 17 must be witching hours and 18 definitely is "eat it", also you have 27 badges as I have only 26. It's frightning : will the police knock on my door if some sleepless nights I turn my reader on...

Mr. and Mrs Kobo, give me my money back I paid for 27 badges and got only 26

Are you sure you read 5 times between 1 am and 5 am? This award appears only after you have earned it. I have a Kobo by fnac which I set up in English, and I have the normal number of awards. I'm only missing the 5 am to 7 am award : no way I can be awake and reading at that time...

As for me no way I can be awake and reading between 1AM and 5 AM, cause that's about my daily my sleeping time : working in Paris suburb and living in Normandy, I need to be in my way before the rushing hours, so I leave at 6AM and rarely go to sleep before midnight... Perhaps when I'll have some days off (and a real page turner to read but I just started a Crichton so that's possible )...

The same applies to me, but my alarm clock usually goes off around 5, so I set it back 5 minutes and when it went off, I turned on the reader and flipped a page.. It took a couple weeks to get it, because I wasn't always willing to get up, but now I've got it lol..

I guess that's one way to get it.. Good thing Kobo didn't decide to break up that time block into smaller pieces.. I would hate to have to try for an award that was 1am-3am, 3am-4am, 4am-5am.. :P

I read the Crichton one in 24 hours I knew it was possible (though I didn't read all day long, I had some other "duties" to do ) so as for at least one time, I have read past midnight and other nights when I just couldn't sleep (work bothers me even during my sleeping time ) and some times I awoke a bit too soon so, I'll have them, it's just a matter of time...

I know I have to keep at least 5 hours of sleep, either way, it's dangerous to drive long trips... I'm a bad sleeper in fact and must stick to that, or I'll have very bad time returning to a regular pattern of sleep (strange enough how lack of sleep can lead you to sleep less and less till you "break down")

Now that's dedication! Personally, I would just change the clock on my reader and continue to sleep in… but I suppose that's cheating

That may be an option for other devices but I believe the KT syncs its clock when you connect to Kobo's servers and cannot be manually set/changed.

Well, I cheated this way in a sense, and not on purpose: I went to Australia for a week and didn't bother changing the time on my Kobo. It thought I was doing most of my reading at rather strange times... ;-)
