When I open IBooks, I can access my library just fine. However, when I click on Featured, Top Charts, or Top Authors, the screen is blank. I can’t search for or purchase new books as a result.

I have the same problem. Talked with Apple Support and tried several ideas- nothing worked. Made an appointment with Genius Bar for next week.

Can you let us know how you get on Mike. I have the same problem.

Both my iPad 3 and my iPad Pro are having the iBook problem. No Best Seller list, New York Times, etc. Only my current bookshelf shows. My IPhone 6 Plus works fine. This is very annoying.

Same problem here. Only part that works is my current bookshelf

Update from me. I’ve been chatting to apple support. They recognise the problem but don’t have a fix at the moment. Apparently, they’re working on a fix which will come through in a software update.

I’ve had the same problem. Today I turned my iPad all the way off. When I turned it back on, I was again able to access Top Authors, etc.

Same problem here. But everything was OK after performing a complete power off.

From my iPad mini I opened iBooks and noticed something odd. A one page instruction on how to assemble a farm table that I had viewed on the internet last week. I have no idea how it landed in my iBook library. I opened it and now can’t close it. I’ve restarted my iPad but it didn’t get rid of the instruction page.

In Books, I can only search by genres, sections, not by author.

Is Apple ever going to fix this? It seems to have been a problem for years?

I go to the bookstore to search for a new book to read and the only results I get are a list of the books in my library. I have using the application on both my iPad and iPhone for years with no issue – until today. I basically cannot search the bookstore. Guess I won’t be buying any more books!!!!!! Would love to know the fix!

Having the same issue with Apple Books in iOS as Bobbie!
Driving me crazy trying to figure this out!

You need to scroll down past where SEARCH shows your library to where it shows Book Store.
My problem is I cannot find recently published books although they’ve been out on kindle for months.
