    I am having terrible problems in trying to search for a book in ibooks. Yesterday I found it but cannot remember how I did it. Today I have looked everywhere (well maybe not everywhere) for it. Could someone kindly help me with this? I have loads of books on my iPad but it's a pain having to scroll through the list to find a particular book.

    Thanks

    Could you try going to Spotlight settings (General > Spotlight Search) and turning on the ability to use the Spotlight function to search for an iBook on your ipad? Might work...

    Thanks for that. Unfortunately that didn't work.

    I have found it. Just pull down from the top and the search facility is revealed. Phew :):)

    Oh, that's what you meant. I thought you were using search, but not finding a book you were searching for. Glad you figured it out.

    Hiding the search option as a pull down is becoming fairly common, so keep this in mind the next time you can't find search in an app. :)
