Did it ever occur to you that not everyone is enamored of minimalism? The point of course is to be able to read and enjoy books, but I LIKED the earthiness and realness of the wooden shelves, particularly in contrast to the technology I'm using to read these books. Now, except for the better collection functions, it looks like Kindle. I like both in as much as not very book is available from iTunes, but do not see this as an aesthetic improvement. Is it too much to ask for some shelf choices?

Thank you for keeping the page turns! I was so worried about what this update would be like because of the obliteration of skeuomorphism on ios7, but you kept the coolest feature of iBooks intact. Noice!

Terrible new design
The old look of the app was far better than this new design. The new design is very unappealing and bland in its look. The wood shelf design from the previous version was more enticing and good-looking than this new look. Really disappointed with the change.

What were you guys thinking?
The new design is just terrible!! What in the world were you people thinking? Apple has started a really stupid trend with the ridiculously boring icons and bland bland bland app backgrounds and formatting, and you people jump right on the idiotic bandwagon. It's hard to believe that something like this could happen. Wow! Just plain stupid!

Awful color scheme
I must agree with the people who are complaining about the new look. I also find the sterile white to be uninteresting. It looks like it was designed by a teenager who was told "compete white looks fancy"... not when used like this. Love the new icon though. You see? Color is good!
