I HATE THE NEW LOOK
With the latest update, Apple just ruined iBooks! The thing I loved about iBooks was that you could feel like you were reading a real book, not some web page. You didn't feel like you were struggling with an old palm pilot reading your first ebook. It had an authentic feel. Now? It is a sterile white, hospital-like appearance. The least you could do was give us an option on background, we could put our own book shelf back. Why? Why, make it look like a website? I might as well dump you guys and go get a Kindle or Nook. I average about five books a week and have absolutely enjoyed the iBooks app. I would have rated it a five star app five minutes ago. Now, you get 1, only because I can still read my books.

Is the new look cleaner? Yes. Does the new look put a focus on the content? No. The lack of ornamentation doesn't necessarily make something else stand out more. The reading experience is now sterile and heartless. iBooks may look great, but it feels wrong.

The new design is lacking.
I have loved iBooks. And though I am in the minority, I enjoy the aesthetic of the wooden bookshelf. I miss it in the new newsstand. And now I miss it in iBooks. The new icon is ugly and the design of the app is sterile and uninteresting.

Truly a lame update
The icons and "flatness" are someone's lame attempt at making a change for change sake. I knew that sooner or later this insanity would extend to iBooks. Don't know what was wrong with the bookshelf, loved it, mourn the passing. The UI now puts iBooks in a distant third behind Nook and Kindle app. SO DISAPPOINTING.

Bleh.........
Not impressed.... Missing the natural look of the bookshelf and books. Know that it was just a graphic but that sort of detail is what makes using an ipad fun and intuitive. New design is......bleh.......
