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.

Sprechen Sie Deutsch? Our hard-working translation teams, and particularly the German team, are in need of some new volunteers to help spread the workload and make translating TidBITS issues easier for everyone. If you're interested in translating English into German, French, Japanese, or Dutch and helping promote the Macintosh community in those languages, check out the URLs below for information on what's involved. Help keep TidBITS truly international! And whether or not you're up for becoming a translator, if you enjoy reading one of our translations each week, let the translators know. The translation teams appreciate the kind letters many of you have sent over the years, and your encouragement makes the task of translating each issue all the more worthwhile. Thanks! [ACE]
