    I'm on the Public Beta of 9.3 -- the real one, released today. I can add an epub to iBooks and have it show up on other devices, but it's not downloading when I tap on it.

    I've tried this adding books to both my iPad and iPhone. They show up on the other device, but no luck downloading.

    Has anyone run into this problem?

    Just wanted to let you know it's not just you. I'm on 10.11.4 / and 9.3 on an iPad Mini 4 and iPhone 6, and icloud books isn't working properly across any of them. The most stable is 10.11.4 but the books won't open on any of the other devices.

    I've gone through every combination of turning **** on and off, enabling/disabling, and removing books and re-adding to get it to work and all I came up with is that it's a server side issue.

    Same thing for me. Added a pdf on my MacBook Pro and my iPhone can see it's there. But cannot view it or download it yet. (iCloud icon with a down arrow)

    On OS X 11.4 they all seem to open.

    None on the iOS devices.

    Glad it's not me.

    Same here. Everything on 10.11.4 works properly. iPad is a little more stable, but on my iPhone 6, iBooks has become completely unusable. Is anyone else having a similar experience? Even when I import epubs from Dropbox directly to iBooks on the iPhone, the book never shows up, and the spinner keeps going indefinitely. The book will show up like 12 hours later, and then appears on OSX like it should, but still remains unusable on the iPhone / iPad.

    Oh well! Can't wait till it works properly. Been waiting on this one for a bit.

    I don't have any problems downloading iBooks, however, progress is not syncing properly between iPad and iPhone.
