    Hello,

    I've had my iPad 2 for over a year now. I have the iBooks app and have never had a problem. But as you can see from the attachment that I have to this post, whenever I try to get into categories I get a blank screen. Does somebody know how to remedy this?

    And the other question I have is if I have to delete the iBooks app itself, will I have to reload the books that I have on the shelf?

    Thanks for your help.

    I have an update. I took the plunge and deleted and then reinstalled the iBooks app. Everything seems to be fine, except that there is no "Categories" section where there was one before. Has anybody else experienced this?

    I noticed that the Categories tab was blank the other day. I figured it was just a glitch in the store, and would straighten itself out eventually. I'm still hoping that, maybe by an iBooks app update from Apple.

    I'm guessing that the straightening out will be exactly what happened to you. The Categories tab will go away. It has been replaced by the ability to select categories from the top bar of the Featured tab. If you don't see the category you want, tap More, and all the Categories will be show.

    Off topic... Sorry

    Please help
    I have finished looking at a book in iBook and now I cannot go back to the bookstand!

    And while I'm at it, where do I go to start a new thread?

    Proof it's way past my bedtime!
