    I have the ibook app on my iPad, ie the bookshelf, and I have one book on shelf called the iPad secrets.

    I forget how I downloaded this book to the bookshelf and I would like to add more, how do I do that.

    Greetings,
    There is a button on the upper right side of the bookshelf screen that says Store. When you click on the button it will take you to the iTunes store where you can download books. If you look around, some of them are free. I believe you can search for books on your computer with iTunes, also.

    This is what I see when I tap the store button in iBooks.

    You probably have "Purchased" selected at the bottom of the screen. Touch the "Books" button to see what's in the store.

    Hi Guys

    I don't have that pic that you both show.

    I have just done a PRINTSCREEN of my bookshelf, the STORE button is dead, and the response to the COLLECTION button is shown in second PRINTSCREEN.

    Here's a thought that just occurred to me, did you have a live Internet connection when you tried to find the store? The store button won't work without an Internet connection.

    Yes, the store button is dead in that view. Tap book, then bookcase should flip back to the shelves. Then store button is alive again.

    That does not work, for when I tap on book, it opens, and the page covers the store button.

    If you want or look to obtain a new book to put into ibook shelf, what do you do, step x step please.

    Sorry for delay, I don't seem to be receiving notifications of reply to post.
