iBooks Crashing

I never use iBooks much, but the other day I bought a book for school and one for myself. When I open the book, iBooks crashes after about 10 seconds. At first I thought something was wrong with iBooks, so I re-downloaded the app along with the books. It still crashes.
I restored my phone and it works fine. Once I re-jailbroke the phone through jailbreakme.com, it started crashing again. So I'm guessing it has something to do with cydia or the phone being jailbroken in general.
My question is, anyone else having this problem?

By the way, for some reason it doesn't have any problems when it's a free book. I find that to be really weird...

It is definitely a problem. I restored both my iPhone 4 and my iPad because I couldn't deal with not having my iBooks. =[ I'm a bookworm so I usually have a new book every few days and when I jailbroke it made me sad.
