How to Organize Your iBooks Library

Your iBooks Library on iPad looks like a bookshelf with all downloaded books stored on it, with the most recently downloaded title in the top-left corner. You can drag titles around on this bookshelf, and you can view your library in a few other ways:

  1. With the bookshelf version of the library displayed, tap the List view button shown in the top-right of this figure.

    Your books appear in a list, as shown.

    Switch back and forth between Bookshelf and List view using these buttons.

  2. To organize the list alphabetically by Titles, Authors, or Categories such as Series, tap the appropriate button on the bottom of the screen.

    For example, if you tap Categories, your titles are divided by category titles such as Fiction, Mysteries & Thrillers, or Literary.

  3. To return to Bookshelf view at any time, tap the Bookshelf view button.

Tap the Bookshelf view button at the bottom of the List view to remove categories and list the most recently added book first.

Use the Edit button in List view to display small circles to the left of all books in the list. Tap in any of the circles and tap the Delete button at the top of the page to delete books, and then tap the Done button to exit the Edit function.
