    I have an iPad original 32GB wifi and my iBooks contains a mixture of 3000+ ePub and PDF books. Lately it has taken up to 30 seconds to load iBooks and after going a few times, I've pressed home button and the top button until the iPad closes and then restarted by pressing the two buttons again. This generally restarts the app. I have all the latest updates. My question is - Am I the only one experiencing this problem? I'm hoping it's an update problem.

    I've tried going into iBooks and again it took 22 seconds and then crashed. I went into it again and it took 56 seconds to open the app and open at my saved bookmark.
    Now that I'm more aware, I will keep checking this.

    I tested a free book just now and didn't have a prob loading. I'm on iOS 5.1. I have only a few books on iBooks, though.

    Hiya Kay, well I did the check again and it crashed after 22 seconds and then when I went into iBooks again, it took 42 seconds to load my book I'm reading. I cleared the multitask bar first, just to see if that makes a difference. I'll check again later. How long does it take for your iBooks to load and does it ever crash?

    Really? Sigh! Does that mean my iPad is showing its age? Poor thing! I wonder what the life of these things are? I'd be gutted if mine died.

    I just did three freebies in a row, on iPad 1, then on iPad 2. Each took about 10-12 seconds to load. iPad 2 was maybe three seconds faster than iPad 1.

    I was testing for you. I don't normally buy from iBooks, because I prefer Kindle, so that my ebooks aren't tied to one hardware maker's devices.

    Oh, Kay! What do you think is happening? Why? I will try again just to see.

    Go into iBooks and press the store button and go into categories and it will give you the top paid and top free books list.
