    Can someone post some screenshots of the new books app in action? I am a heavy user of iBooks on my iPad and I hope books will be better.

    Awesome! Thanks for posting these @alexandru.popa.

    Does anyone know if audiobooks will (finally) stream from the cloud, or do we have to still have them fully downloaded in order to listen to them?

    It appears that (at least in beta 1) the reading experience is unchanged. Not that this is a bad thing, but I'd hoped at least for some different fonts.

    I can live with everything in the app apart from the margins. I tend to use Marvin a lot I just wish it was still updated.

    Thanks for that - the margins do look a little narrower IMHO.

    Apple Previews Redesigned Books App Coming in iOS 12 might be of some help.

    I am not a fan of the new font in Books on iOS12. Also would like Dark Mode for the app (not just the books).

    I'm not sure why the font is different, it's annoying.

    It seems to enter a dark mode at night, but I can’t find any way of manually turning that on/off. Note: I’m referring to the book listing etc. here and not reading. Within a book dark mode seems as it was before iOS 12.
