Finally got my Austen award and my fanatic award. Still at 80% with classic attack. I read all the books I was suppose to read....I followed the earlier post...still can't make 100%

Alas not. The number of pages award is Juggernaut, and you get it for turning 10000 pages.

The last 2 books were Emma by Austen (the free version) and The Haunted Bookstore by Christopher Morley.

I am hoping itbhas settled down...at least for now....
Thanks for the information. I'll try those books and see if it causes problems with the app, and if so, we'll investigate as to why and attempt to resolve the issue for a future update.

Sooo... new update... no new awards added. I heard a rumour that there may be some on the way though. Anyone care to comment?

I've had the juggernaut (10 000 pages turned, called "Titan" for the french version) yesterday about 3 months after I bought my Touch. There's only one left I can get (since there are "bugs" and that I'm not on Facebook, neither do I want to be there, in any case ) and I'll be through : I'll have to put more books in my reader, but everything will come in time...

I can confirm that on the Vox, reading HG Wells "The Time Machine" will not net you the Time Lord award..

Personally I always thought that the "Time Lord" award was tied into reading one or more "Dr. Who" ebooks. Doesn't work for the KT so can't comment much further than that. :P

The 'Time Lord' award has to do with having books from certain publishers, but is only available for the iOS app.

So are those books "Time" or "Dr. Who" related somehow?

I should have Fanatic, but it's not appearing, although both Not an Open Book and Total Recall randomly appeared after I should have had them for months.

How do I get the following awards:
Game's Afoot
Sun, Sea, Sand, Kobo
Spirit of Portland
Time Lord (What publishers do you need?)
Magic Kobo eReader (I have tried using my iPad as a magic eight ball and ~nothing)
Sneaky Reads

Still having trouble with my classic attack award.. no idea how to increase it from 80%

Also, having bought and read both pretty little liars, and Dead Reckoning, i haven't got any new awards.. thought there was one attached to dead reckoning (which i rather enjoyed, btw!)

Does anyone know the criteria for the sookie stackhouse awards (i think there are more than one)

and the criteria for the pretty little liars awards (there are 4 of them).. caus i'm just a bit confused now!

As I'm in a very good mood, I'll be a little more forthcoming that usual

Game's Afoot = Purchase 5 mystery eBooks from publisher Soho Press

Sun, Sea, Sand, Kobo = purchase 1 book from the following publisher: Avalon, Fodor's, Healthy Travel Media, Blaze Travel Guides, Rough Guides, Rough Guides US, Lonely Planet Publications.

Spirit of Portland = Unlocked by purchasing 5 pop culture books from these publishers: Quirk, BenBella, Open Court

Time Lord = by purchasing 5 sci fi ebooks from publishers: Wizards of the Coast, Orbit, Tor (As for related to Doctor Who or Time, I don't think they are, I think it was more of looking for an easily identifiable SciFi icon and what better than a Tardis)

Magic Kobo eReader = Sorry, I'm going to be rather horrible and not reveal how to get that one. It is iOS only, and fairly well hidden.

Sneaky Reads = purchased 10 harlequin books

Sookie ones = You get one for having 1 Sookie book in your Library. You also get awards for finishing (complete and close the book) 2, 5 and 10 Sookie books

Pretty Little Liars = You get one if you have Twisted in your Library. You also get awards for finishing (complete and close the book) 3, 6, and 9 of the PLL books.


Aaaaannnddddd rest...
I think I've given out enough hints for today, hope they help (and hope no-one minds)

I just can't seem to get Juggernaut, I had to do another factory reset (For the Beta) and that knocked it down to 55% again. Will I ever get it?

I know I've read about 20000 pages.

The same for me... I highlighted, even took notes, but I can't get this one I'll try more notes or highlights, perhaps you need ten or more...
