    Any ideas on what the black/green thing is next to settings?

    There is no reason why iBooks shouldn't have been there all along.

    The question I have is will you be able to have more than one book open at once on a Mac?

    This is useful when you are working on a project and need to jump between multiple references.

    I agree.

    My guess is that it is about copy protection. iBooks is the only e-book platform that hasn't been fully hacked.

    Now that it will be available on OS X that will probably change. Not that I am advocating that hack.

    I feel Apple realized that it was needed in OS X so it was will to sacrifice their copy protection security.

    Honest buyers shouldn't be penalized for dishonest people. Personally I do not know anyone breaking the copy protection on their e-books.

    Yep, Apple's website says you can have as many as you want open. I just hope it syncs your pdfs and lets you do all the annotation features on them too, not just the epubs. From the website:
