New Design looks like a downgrade
What happened to the beautiful background that made it actually look like you were reading a book?? What happened to the wood shelf that held all my books? When I first opened I thought there was an error cause everything just looked so bare and white. At least give us some options or something... Please fix soon! It makes me not want to read my books on the ipad!!

Making things worse
First the new OS made things uglier, now iBooks. It looks like something from a decade ago, not what I would expect from Apple. Come on, Man! You used to be cutting edge.

Ugly
This "stark new redesign" is hideous. I can't stand it. I thought the entire point of iBooks and similar readers, was to simulate reading a book as much as possible. Making everything look barren and clinical does NOT accomplish this. I'll be going elsewhere for my reading needs. This redesign, on top of all the glaring issues I have with the UI itself are it for me. Done. See you later iBooks, get your act together and maybe you can entice me to come back. I won't hold my breath however. Fix this please.

Ugly!
Apple screwed up a good thing. New icon is ugly, and the new design is ugly and basic. App still works well but it looks like an amateur designed the layout with no imagination. Bring back the original book shelf and real looking book border.

BOOOO!
I like the old version better. I like how the old version looks more like I'm reading from an actual book and not just from a device or computer. Also, the highlighter before was less harsh and uneven lines similar to real life experience. I had hoped they would leave the update for at least iBooks app. <3
