I think a bunch of new awards would be fun too. All I can suggest is to try posting 'idea' threads on GetSatisfaction (https://getsatisfaction.com/kobo/topics) letting us know what you think of Reading Life / Awards.

Hi, I am new to this forum (or better new to any forum) so if I type something wrong don't hastate to correct/inform me.
I have recently started using Kobo (app first and eReader touch later) and tried to get the info on award's and it seems this is the only forum that shares decent information.
Now am I a sucker for lists and orderly overviews, so I made a list of the awards that I could find in this forum as complete as possible made it in to a PDF you find the link below.
If anyone can make the list more complete please share the info with me and I will update it.

By the way I hope I didn't breach any copyrights or so but if I did please tell me, so I can alter the list.


Also if you got Awards where I didn't got the icon yet, please make a screenshot on your iOS device and share this with me.

Interesting - I hadn't realised there were so many secret and time-limited ones

You can find some additional award images here (http://www.kobobooks.com/awards), though that isn't the complete list. Oh, and those seasonal awards (which date back to late 2010 / early 2011) were only available on iOS.

So, anyone have a fix for the buggy "Book Lover" award, that doesn't include a factory reset?

And does the factory reset really work for achieving Book Lover?

Hi Wald07, I don't know if this will work but I can't see why not.
Do you or anyone you know own a iPhone ?
If so, install the free app and try to log in from that, that should earn the award, wait a little and if all is right should sync the award, so you have it on your reader to.
And if it's a friend's iPhone just log out and let them decide if they want to use it or remove it
I hope this works for you

To all:

And again I updated the list and reshuffeld it a bit so the unobtainable's are lower on the list and I put the awards for books and publishers together, maybe it is just better you take a look.

I started reading on a Sharper Image Litterati, bought a KOBO TOUCH and now read on my Toshiba Thrive, and sometimes on an HTC Inspire 4G.

Recently the KOBO app was updated. I was at 32/32 of Reading Life awards until the update. Now I am missing eREADING RAINBOW. This award is for downloading an ebook optimized for KOBO VOX. Other than using a VOX, is there anyway to download an "optimized for VOX" book?

Right now, fixed layout content (items on the "just of kobo box" list on the website) is Vox only, but it should be appearing for iOS in the near future.

I'm still struggling with a few of the awards.. namely 1) Sun, sea sand Kobo, 2) Spirit of Portland, 3)Time Lord, 4) Sneaky Reads, 5) Dead reckoning...

Even though i've bought the required books from the right publishers, i still haven't got the award and can't work out why... are there particular titles you need to buy?

Also, Potent Quotables.. any ideas on that one?
