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.

White
Yep. It's white. It is exactly the same as before. Except white. Blindingly white. Excruciatingly boring white. Did I mention it's white. Waste of time.

Hideous
The new update brings with it an absolutely horrendous new design. The book case was classic, now it just looks blah. If I could give it 0 stars than I would. Deleting this app now.
