    Hope this fixes were it keeps downloading the books, but won’t let me read them.

    You could at least transfer books using iTunes Home Sharing before. Hopefully they bring that back or add iCloud sync.

    With iCloud sync of non-DRM ebook i already own, iBooks in Mavericks is pointless. Take a look at what Readmill and Google Play Books to see how it should be done…

    Should say ‘Without’ not ‘With’…

  5. MUCH better. It kept bouncing off my corporate firewall, even when I wasn’t using or hadn’t loaded the app. The new version isn’t doing that.
