    DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE NEW iBOOKS APP!!!
    I just got the new version on my iPad and installed it on my iPod Touch. It shows the books I have purchased, BUT IT WILL NOT OPEN THEM!!!

    UPDATE: Cycled power to iPod and iPad and now the books will load, but they are back at the beginning of each book. iBooks has a long way to go if they want to be better than the Kindle app!

    I am done purchasing iBooks until they fix it!!!

    I think apple will be having issues with 100,000 people downloading iBooks at once tbh... :S

    I'm sure it will be fixed soon

    I've had no problems and the bookmark syncing between the iPad and the iPhone seems to work perfectly.

    No issues with Itunes either - everything is synced correctly.
