    Hi,

    . For years, I've been using iBooks for thousands of ePub books in different languages on my iPad. The iBooks has a nice LIST VIEW which displays my 'customized names' of the files, such as '[Crosswhite 03] In the Clearing - Author Name'. This is a must-have to identify the sequence of a series. In addition, iBooks allows for listing by authors.

    . The new Apple Books took away the LIST VIEW. I would prefer the old iBooks app back if possible, or at least how to enable the LIST VIEW in the new Books app.

    Hope that someone here can help.
    Thanks

    In the app tap “Library” at the bottom:
    E0065538-6AC1-4547-B5C8-9C32EEE062D8.png
    If you can’t find this icon immediately:

    then swipe down a bit on the screen to reveal it.

    Hi,
    The iBooks app (Pre-IOS12) can display customized titles such as:

    [Crosswhite 03] In the Clearing - Author Name
    [Crosswhite 04] The Trapped Girl - Author Name
    [Crosswhite 03] Close To Home - Author Name

    This is essential to keep track of books in series. And with thousands of books, it is much easier to browse thru as each screen can list few dozen titles. New Apple Books won't do it. Pity.

    I attempted to use Cydia Impactor to side load the old iBooks.ipa. Can't.
