New design is sterile and ugly
I'm a big fan of iOS7's minimalist design, but this is just a blank white page with floating books in a grid. It has zero character and the contrast is too stark. Would prefer something with a little more personality.

Somebody, get Jonny out of the iOS section!
Wow! Let me just say that I love ios 7, but the Apple apps with this particular aesthetic--calendar, contacts, AppStore, and now, iBooks--look awful! Stark white, clinical and soulless is what this is... This is not design, it's a blank white screen with freakin rectangles! For God's sake at least make it look like the Trailers app... It is one of a very few of the new stock apps that actually *looks* fantastic! (Oh, but that might be too similar to "that-other-OS", and we wouldn't want to be seen as imitating *them*. Would we?)

Ugly ugly
This has taken iBooks back to the stone age. Looks horrible. Without the shelves it's hard to manage. Hate it.

Why would they ruin everything that made iBooks good? It's incredibly unattractive- can I get my bookshelf back?

Bookshelf
The old bookshelf is gone and now I wish I didn't update it. It's awful. It was easier to see all the subcategories on the old bookshelf. White is the worst color for your eyes when reading on such small devices. Evening makes text bigger doesn't change the ugly bookshelf that's new.
