A step backward
Hate the look of any of these new ios7-style apps. There is no style to them. Plain white background which is hard on the eyes (and probably the battery's charge). Faint, thin, hard to read fonts. (I was born the same year as Steve Jobs, so I guess I'm too old to expect to read these apps). At least up until now I could relish the fact that Apple had spared iBooks this ios7 fate. Alas, no longer true. It's now more like browsing for books at your doctor's office waiting room, compared to your own bookshelf at home.

So much time and energy going into "flat design" but the results are not that good.

Shut Up Wood-Loving Idiots
Were you morons really surprised Apple threw out the wooden bookshelf? Did it not occur to you that it clashed just a tad with the rest of iOS 7? Quit your whining and buy an old used iPhone off eBay if you're so upset. Idiots.

Stuck margins
Need to make it possible to adjust margins like kindle. Really simple and makes a ton of difference.

might as well go back to the kindle app.
If you haven't updated, DON'T! Because this used to be so much better...! Now it's white & lifeless.

I keep books on a shelf
I knew this was coming...and it's as ugly as I thought it would be. Totally ruined an amazing UI that was both pretty and functional. Not that I don't like any of of iOS7 design...I actually do...but it takes much more design skill to do the old UI compared to this simple UI.
