Ok, so I tried this and it seems to work, but... I also thought to remove two other books which I had downloaded in sample form. The book in question that was crashing was also originally downloaded in sample form. I bought the book from within the sample which was my first wariness. The crashiness did not go away until I made the other two sample books go bye-bye. The reason I thought to try this is that I noted in the three sample books that I had download that somehow they were affecting one another in that whatever page number I left off of in sample book A would be the same page number that sample book B opened up to though it was the first time ever opening sample book B. So... could be the smoking gun, could be a red herring. Who knows. Regardless, the book works now so happiness is with me. Many thanks. EDIT ~ The book is still a little bit crashie. By that I mean it lets me actually read quite a few pages before shutting the app down now and not all of the illustrations display completely, as if they were still loading.... but never finish. Oh well... Lesson learned. Cost of lesson: $11.99.
