iPad: Jump to a Specific Page of an iBook

By Edward C. Baig, Bob LeVitus

When you’re reading a iBook (e-book) on your iPad, you often want to go to a specific page of the book or to the table of contents. Here’s how:

  1. Tap anywhere near the center of the page you’re reading to summon page navigator controls, if they’re not already visible.

    The controls are labeled in this figure.


  2. Drag your finger along the slider at the bottom of the screen until the chapter and page number you want appear.

  3. Release your finger and voilà — that’s where you are in the book.

Most books you read on your iPad have Tables of Contents, just like many other books. Here’s how you use a Table of Contents on your iPad:

  1. With a book open on your iPad, tap the Table of Contents button near the top of the screen.

    The Table of Contents screen, as shown in the figure, appears.


  2. Tap the chapter, title page, or another entry to jump to that page.

    Alternatively, tap the Resume button that appears at the upper-left corner of the screen to return to the previous location in the book.
