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.

Next Issue 08-Dec-03 -- We're taking next week off from our regular publication schedule so we can all spend some relaxing time with families and friends over the Thanksgiving holiday here in the U.S. I plan to continue moderating TidBITS Talk many of these days other than a few around Thanksgiving itself, and we'll be using some of the extra time to work on assembling our annual gift issue. Look for the next issue of TidBITS on 08-Dec-03, and for those partaking in the holiday festivities, enjoy! [ACE]
