Ugly and boring
I hate the new update! It is ugly! I loved the "book" and bookshelf look of the app before! Now it is like I am reading from a cheap ereader instead of a quality Apple product! You should at least give us the option in the settings for us to turn on the book and shelf look or turn it off for the new supposedly better format! I actually really liked the skeumorph format better then the new stuff with iOS7.

God it is awful!
I switched to using iBooks from using Nook because I though Nook was ugly and not very well laid out. I really enjoyed the look of the old iBooks. I enjoyed opening it up to see the bookshelf and how warm and comfortable it made me feel. It really made me feel as if I was sitting in a library choosing my next book. Now? It looks sterile and unwelcoming. Not to mention in the actual book, there is no longer the page count, or how many pages left in the chapter. Opening the book itself no longer is as fun or as enjoyable. Even the icon looks like a pathetic attempt at returning to 1980 graphics. I was thinking of buying an iphone5s for reading on the road, but no. I am not going to waste my money on something that looks cold and unwelcoming.or having no choice when it comes to looks. I am very unhappy with the whole new ios7. There are too many bugs and quirks and changes. Your update should have come in slowly having people slowly get accustomed to such a drastic change.

iOS 7 Update: Still Good
I have to admit, I never cared for the whole faux-bookshelf gimmick. What I want from iBooks is simply an app that lets me read my Honor Harrington series and 1632 series science fiction books on my phone - and it does so just as well now as before. (Perhaps - although I don't want to extrapolate hastily - a bit better, because it does so a bit faster.) As far as I can see, there is no reason to postpone the update - all is well.
