iBooks Under iOS 7
The iOS 7 update is wunderbar! The new, flat design is beautiful, and the book stitching and bookshelf is gone. I can't say I'll be missing either. The new look is super clean and just about the content. I know that getting lost in the whimsical design was cool, but at the end of the day, at least for me, the books were great with or without the stitching and the wood. The new update doesn't seen to add any new functionality, but it's nice to see a mobile app that matches the OS X app.

Functional but Not intuitive
The app works when you learn where everything is. A book shelf made sense and iOS 6 was intuitive. The new look is unnecessarily trying to implement both a skeuomorphic and flat design esthetic. Choose one apple and make a truly new design for the app or give us back a shelf that makes sense.

New ios7 look is horrible!
Dislike the new white shelves. Still good for reading but it looks depressing! Bring back the bookshelf or give us options!

Not A Fan of the New Look
Why did you take away the bookshelf background and replace it with a sterile, cold, white background? It's very unfriendly. Someone needs to go back to the drawing board and give us a choice of backgrounds. Really disappointed in this update.

Flat and White
First of all, it is faster, sleeker, and it makes better use of the screen. The bad news? Everything is FLAT and the beautiful bookshelf UI is now cheap white NOTHING.

Is this what you expected?
I'm sure the Apple team is busy patting themselves on the back, but I think they have lost their way. iOS 7 looks sterile, and childlike to me. iBooks is at best fair looking. The design has gone as far possible in the opposite direction from Skeuomorpism. Where is the middle ground? It's disappointing.
