    I'm not completely sure I understand what is going on.

    If this is happening for a specific book, try deleting that book and downloading it again.

    It's ibooks itself that's the issue, not a specific book. When you open iBooks in the top right corner, it should have an "edit" function so you can delete or move books. Mine just spins like it's thinking about it and boots me from the app

    That's odd. It should say Select, not Edit.

    The only thing I can find that says Edit is the Collections list that you get when tapping the All Books (or Books, or PDF's) in at the top center of the screen.

    The place where Select button shows can spend a considerable amount of time spinning, as it tries to find All your books, especially if you're really showing All books and have a large library.

    Try going to Settings > iBooks and turning off Online Content. That should keep iBooks from looking in the iBooks Store for those books you've purchased, but not downloaded to the device.

    Restart the device after changing the settings, so the iBooks will get a clean restart instead of trying to continue where it left off.

    At the very least it will let us know if the problem is with the locally stored library, or a matter of accessing the iBook Store servers.

    Correct, Select is what comes up. I couldn't remember because I no longer get it :(... Anyway I did as suggested and it still does same. I reset my pad completely and that worked for about 4 hours. So I think during that 4 hours I turned something back on that another app needed and it's affecting ibooks. Still searching

    You may have to do a restore using iTunes on a computer.

    Restore it with a backup first (so do a back up on the computer first) and see if that works. If it does not you may end up having to do a clean restore and adding all your apps and content back manually.

    Which means if you haven't already saved all your important non-istore content off the iPad, do so now.

    Or the next update might fix it, if you can wait that long. There was an update today, briefly, before people discovered it was breaking iPhone 6 features. Apple pulled it. No telling how long it will take them to put it out again.

    I downloaded a couple of free books from iBooks. Now I can't find a way to delete? When I do find a "delete" button, it will not light up as active?? Any ideas.
