I hope one day they can add some surprise ones like reading on a certain holiday. Now that they have Kobo in so many countries, it might be interesting to see one pop up for a Holiday for another country. (^_^)

I ended up just disabling the whole Reading Life thing. I found it distracting. So I guess if they ever do add more awards, I won't notice.

I'm disappointed in the implementation of the reading awards on my KA1. On my iPad, the awards pop up an announcement when you achieve them. On the KA1, you have to specifically check on them. Also, I find they don't update very well. Are they buggy in general on the eReaders versus the iPad? I don't want to waste time "fixing" something that is broken on their end. haha

I don't seem to have that listed on my device. What are the instructions displayed when you view the award?

If I recall ... to get this award, you need to side load a few books (epub or pdf that were not purchased from Kobo) onto your Kobo device.

1) Connect your Kobo to your computer with the USB cable. It should mount as a drive named KOBOReader (or similar).

2) Drag a few books onto the drive. If you use Calibre, you can send a few books to your device instead.

3) Eject the drive; then unplug the cable from your Kobo. Your device will process the added books.

4) Open one of the new books. Enjoy your award.

The fully loaded award is on my kobo app that is on my iPhone. All is says is to add some books from out side my kobo library. I did what unsaid but the award is still grey on my iPhone.

I created a new Kobo account and installed the app on my iPad to try to get the award. I side-loaded 100 pdfs and 100 epubs from FeedBooks and Project Gutenberg using iTunes. No go. Then I added more books from iCloud Drive, Dropbox, email attachments, and downloaded with Mobile Safari... nothing worked.

I also couldn't get All You Can Eat, which should have triggered with so many books in the app.

I'm stumped. Either there is a bug in the current app, or I'm loosing my mind. Possibly both.

I've noticed delays in the awards that do eventually complete. It makes me wonder if there is something happening on a Kobo server instead of on the device itself. I've had an easier time completing awards on my iPad, but that was years ago! I've had a much more difficult time competing them on my KA1. The Kobo doesn't recognize that the event criteria are being fulfilled. This is either a failure in the software or a problem on their end. Since your iPad isn't completing awards as well as my KA1, it may be that Kobo isn't supporting the program anymore.

Ah, good point. I completed all the awards years ago, so it's possible. I only created the new account and installed the Kobo app to try to help reader2012. I've deleted the app, so I don't know if the award was delayed, either. Hopefully reader2012 will let us know if their award shows up!
