See All Your Books in iBooks

The iBooks app for iOS lets you assign your books to different collections, but does not have any obvious way for you to see all of your books, regardless of the collection you have put them in. There is, however, a workaround that can show you just about all of your books at once: reveal the search field at the top of any collection in iBooks and type a single space into that field.

With this search, iBooks lists all of the books that have a space either in the title of the book or in the author's name. Other than the rare book that has a one-word title and a single-name author, you end up with a list of all of your books.

TidBITS Authors

Send Article to a Friend

I've written the majority of the articles that appear in TidBITS with Tonya's help, but six other people have written articles for us as well (if we've missed anyone, please accept our heartfelt apologies). We'd like to thank them for helping out with excellent reviews and articles. We've listed them in order of the number of characters they wrote. Of course, that isn't a terribly accurate number because we always change the original size in the editing process. Detail details.

  • Ian Feldman = 36,980 (two articles and the Xanadu special issue)

  • Ken Hancock = 18,786 (the compression program comparison)

  • Mark H. Anbinder = 14,277 (articles on Macworld Expo in San Francisco)

  • Len Schwer = 10,909 (the FlexiTrace review)

  • Andrew Lewis = 6,400 (an article on DeskWriter problems)

  • Harry Skelton = 3,290 (an article on the Sony NeWS server and uShare)

Thank you all for the total 90,642 characters you've contributed over the last year, a little under 10% of all the writing we've published.
