Terrible Update
The best you can do is an all white background and call it an update. Plain icon...got to be some scheme coming like "for xxx.xx dollars we will sell you a color enhancement." Your telling me the computer geniuses sat around a table and came up with a plain white scheme and some CEO went for that. Give us a break for goodness sake. Everyone at my office with an iPhone is trying to figure out what's wrong with Apple...and why are we spending money for black and white!

All this white is so hard on the eyes!!
Again, HATE the ios7 updates. It is not just unattractive, the hemorrhage of white everywhere gives me eyestrain and headaches. Also, I get so much more insomnia when I use my iOS device now. The glare messes with one's brain! PLEASE fix it, Apple!!

Ugly, stale redesign
I understand the movement away from skeuomorphism. But this was one app where it was nice to have that old library bookshelf feel/look. Now it makes me think of a laboratory.

Hate it!!!!
I want the library look back. I feel like I'm reading from the kindle or nook app.

Bland new UI
Skeuomorphism is perfectly acceptable for a virtual bookshelf. This new UI is too utilitarian, and uninviting. Without any guidance or restraint from Steve, or anyone else, apparently, Jony Ive's become like a bull in a china shop. His drive to "simplify" everything has become detrimental to Apple's apps and hardware products.
