Browse and Search for Books

Once you tap the Store icon, you’re transported into the iBookstore—which looks quite a bit like the iTunes Store and the App Store, but with book titles instead of music, videos, and TV programs. But like those other iStores, browsing and searching works pretty much the same way.

The main storefront features new best sellers, popular titles, and books the iBookstore staff finds interesting. If you’re browsing for books on a specific subject, tap the Categories button (circled) and select from the pop-up menu.

A row of four icons at the bottom of the screen sort the books into groups:

  • Featured . The main storefront displays new and notable titles and spotlighted genres. Flick to the bottom of the screen for links to books on sale, books made into movies, books Apple’s staff thinks you should read, books so enticing people are preordering them, free books, and books Oprah likes. Buttons at the bottom of every Store screen let you log in or out of your Apple account, redeem iTunes gift cards, or get technical support with an iBookstore problem.
