Austen, it's a shame, I've read 3 or 4 of them already, but maybe just pageturn through the ones I've already read.. I wonder if they impose a time limit minimum, so that people don't just take 10-15 minutes to tap their screen 500 times for an award..

Classic Attack: This is the list I'm going with.. (just Pride and Prejudice to go)

Just to clarify, the following list is pretty much the definitive list of awards available (though it's missing one Vox-specific award). Note that all the awards listed at the end under 'Other' are currently only available on the iOS app:

Below is, as far as I'm aware, the complete list of awards that can be achieved for each platform. Some are easy to obtain, others are not so easy.
Some of these are hidden awards, so they won't appear in the awards list until you have acheived them.

Obviously I've not included how to get them all, that would be cheating

realised what my problem is with the fully loaded award. When i load pdf books that i have already on my laptop, they don't register on the iphone app under the "docs" tab of my library.

Can anyone suggest a place where i can find some epubs of books that DO work? Preferably ones that are tried and tested, ie. ones that do turn up in the "docs" section of the app.

Thanks!

Am also retrying to earn the classic award.. compeltely deleted all the books on my iphone app, and reloaded the classics. shall reread them, so here's hoping. (will be a bit annoyed if i reread them and nothing happens!) fingers crossed

You actually got the "Fully Loaded" award for the Kobo Touch?

That sounds more like "All you can eat" than "Fully Loaded"..

hmm.. my Fully Loaded tells me "Adding outside reads is an awesome way to fill out your library." meaning ebooks not from kobo I reckon.. it probably did All you can Eat as well, don't know the number you need to hit for it tho

On iOS, and I'd presume KT follows the same rules:

Fully Loaded - User side loads epub / pdf to the applications

All You Can Eat - Have ≥ 20 books (not side loaded, or bundled books) in your Library. 20 Free books would get you the award, as would purchased books, not sure about previews though.

so you just downloaded books from those two sites onto your laptop, and sideloaded onto your iphone/vox?

didn't realise that fully loaded was available on the readers.. maybe its possible on vox but not on KT.

will try that this weekend! And thanks for two new sources of books!

Woo, finally managed to get the Fully loaded on iphone (it doesnt work on the KT).. thanks for the links to websites.. i'm guessings the pdfs and ebooks i was trying it with were just the wrong type!

However, classic attack still eludes me. Have tried wiping off all the books in my iphone and KT library, and reloading books and rereading them, but no change. Any suggestions?
