Yet Another Poor Update
Apple is on a roll. Taking out the depth of its previous designs, flattening them, brightening the background, and removing the shading. The blindingly bright background makes your content that much harder to see. The presentation is flat with little depth and separation between content. It is just a mess. "Upgrade" is not recommended.

I'm Full of Regret!!!
The design compared to before is horrible!! I really miss the natural feeling of the bookshelf, and the old icon was better too. Everything is just white, flat, and simply not at its best. The app (thankfully) isn't crashing, so I can still read my books. This isn't the only app that's ruining my iOS7 experience...

The new version is horrible!! Why change it so much, I can't understand. I don't enjoy it anymore one bit...

I'm not liking the new design...
Apple, you took away the edges of the book with the update. Now it looks boring like the kindle app. I want my edges back, so it feels more like a real book.

Still Crashes
Just downloaded the Nov 14th update and it still crashes when you select a word to define - please fix! Otherwise this would be a great app

Too much like Kindle
There's a reason I use iBooks instead of kindle. It looks better, more stylish. But not anymore. It's almost exactly the same. And the books are usually cheaper for kindle anyway. Keep the minimal look if you want, but please make it look, I don't know, nicer maybe? Then I'll keep buying books from this app. Because right now just looking at it is giving me a headache. Especially those ugly white "shelves".
