    Is there a way, in iBooks, to access recently opened books? I find it infuriating to open another book then struggle to find the other one if I want to go back to it. My Nexus 7 is not as good as an ipad but the reader facilities are much better. I have a lot of books on my ipad (my choice).

    Cheers

    Brian

    In the "My Books" tab (bottom left), you'll find "Most Recent" when you select "All" (All Books will be visible afterwards) at the very top.

    Nice. I never noticed that.

    I tend to keep all my current and to-be-read books in the Books collection, then move them into another collection when done. The list stays reasonabaly short (4 to 15 books), so I seldom have reason to look for recent books.

    But nice to know there is a way.

    On the Kindle app I tend to remove books from the device if I'm not planning to reading them soon. This has the same affect, keeping the list of immediate reading material short. I can always look at the Cloud list, and search for older titles when needed.

    I supose this is similar to the old bookshelf days, where books I was reading, or planning on reading were left out in plain sight, instead of being filed away on the bookshelf. :)
