A looooooong wait for the update and all we get is a white screen? No new features and a new look that I find rather ugly :( iBooks is still the best e-reading app, but this was not a step forward.

Difficult to see PDF documents
Light gray background in Library was not the best choice. Most PDFs are white background, so they blend into the background too easily.

Ugly and boring
I hate the new update! It is ugly! I loved the "book" and bookshelf look of the app before! Now it is like I am reading from a cheap ereader instead of a quality Apple product! You should at least give us the option in the settings for us to turn on the book and shelf look or turn it off for the new supposedly better format! I actually really liked the skeumorph format better then the new stuff with iOS7.

God it is awful!
I switched to using iBooks from using Nook because I though Nook was ugly and not very well laid out. I really enjoyed the look of the old iBooks. I enjoyed opening it up to see the bookshelf and how warm and comfortable it made me feel. It really made me feel as if I was sitting in a library choosing my next book. Now? It looks sterile and unwelcoming. Not to mention in the actual book, there is no longer the page count, or how many pages left in the chapter. Opening the book itself no longer is as fun or as enjoyable. Even the icon looks like a pathetic attempt at returning to 1980 graphics. I was thinking of buying an iphone5s for reading on the road, but no. I am not going to waste my money on something that looks cold and unwelcoming.or having no choice when it comes to looks. I am very unhappy with the whole new ios7. There are too many bugs and quirks and changes. Your update should have come in slowly having people slowly get accustomed to such a drastic change.
