Wow. I mean, sure, I can still read my books with it. And yes, it's all flat & seven-ish now. While that's been okay in every other stock app - and fine for the home screen icons - it's somehow awful for the bookcase. There was a charm and a class to the wooden bookcase & the way it spun to reveal the store. The warmth of it eased the transition from paper to screen, and gave weight to these things that need weight. Now my books live in a place without substance or character; an antiseptic plane in which they float in an eye-draining purgatory of white nothingness. The cover art seems to blurt out at me in a riot of contrast, where once the texture of the bookshelf allowed each to compliment the other. It's horrid.

DO NOT UPDATE
The update is AWFUL! They took away the bookshelf look and replaced it with an ugly, boring white screen. Seriously upset that I updated. PLEASE PUT BACK THE BOOKSHELF.

I miss the bookshelf
I understand iOS 7 is about simplicity but the bookshelf gave iBooks its character!

Much improved performance
I have an iPhone 4 and thanks to ios7 it is now super slow. iBooks sucked, but this latest update boosts performance at least 100%. Now if Apple would just do that for the rest of ios7...
