    Has anyone else had experience of this since updating iBooks with new iOS?

    I find I have to swipe my finger across the page very quickly and sometimes repeatedly to go to the next page, this never used to be the case (For PDFs).

    Normal books still feels smooth and easy as before.

    YES, most definitely. I don't see it in all PDFs, but one textbook with images is driving me up the wall.

    The problem is that instead of changing pages smoothly, iBooks rubber-bands the swipe. I can forcibly haul half the next page into view (that is, the left half), but no more. Releasing snaps back to the current page. Repeating the slide gesture turns the page normally. Is this the behavior you're seeing?

    Yes this is pretty much what I am experiencing. I've found that zooming into the page makes swiping to next page a lot easier. Still never used to be like this before.
