I was wondering if anyone could help me as I have downloaded iBooks books on my phone and I have done numberoud times before with no trouble. However I have recently downloaded three books, but when starting up the App on my iPad the books will not download, simply showing the bar, not doing anything. I have deleted and redownloaded the App numerous times and have tried everything I can to no avail. Please help? :/

Just had a similar problem on my iBooks.

Sovled it by going into Settings and Store. Went to my iTunes account and set my address again. Saved settings. IBooks started up and downloaded books as normal.

I believe my problem started when I was on a UK web site. I am in US. There was a book I wanted, sold only in UK. I saw a link to the book to buy it from iBook store. When I pressed it, it went to the iBookstore, but gave me a message that the book was not available. The next time I opened the App Store, got just a blank screen.
