    Unable to read books

    I recently opened a book in my iBook library to continue reading it. The language has changed from english to
    another language. I have no idea how it happened nor how to change the language back to English. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi
    Go to settings/general/
    Date and Time
    Keyboard
    International
    and check these settings relevant to your Region, Language and Time Zone.
    I'm sure your problem lies here.
    Hope this helps

    Thank's for the help!
    But I'm back with some serious issues. I followed the instructions about going to settings. I think my iBook app is corrupt. I deleted my purchased books and attempted to download them again. The books show an icloud with a down arrow. Am I to believe that apple is using icloud with certain apps. Or could this some type of virus. Each and every book I download will not open.

    Well I finally solved my problem. I deleted iBooks and downloaded the app again. All of my books were automatically downloaded to iBooks.

    The last time someone from Malaysia asked this they said very little was available in the iBooks store. I believe they ended up using the Stanza app with some success.

    Stanza is ok, with several built in books stores, some free. You can also use iTunes to load free ePubs you find from other sites. The app is free, so check it out.
