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.

Month of Apple Sales #2: Love the One You're With -- Valentine's Day is this week, reminding us to think of our nearest and dearest. In the Mac world, you needn't pine for new versions of iPhoto, iTunes, iWeb, and GarageBand when you can focus on the iLife '06 versions you have now. If you're quick, you can learn how to send your sweetie an iWeb-created invitation to a romantic viewing of a photo slideshow set to music you composed in GarageBand. But don't geek out too much - follow it up with gourmet chocolates accompanied by soft jazz (we're partial to Green Mountain Chocolates and Abbey Lincoln). To get started, save 60 percent on this bundle of essential information about iPhoto, iTunes, iWeb, and GarageBand. That's 5 ebooks for only $23.18 (regularly $57.95).

  • iPhoto 6: Visual QuickStart Guide
  • Take Control of iWeb
  • Macworld iPod and iTunes Superguide
  • Take Control of Making Music with GarageBand
  • Take Control of Recording with GarageBand

To take advantage of this discount, just purchase from the Month of Apple Sales #2: Love the One You're With page.

And yes, if you want the bundle but already own one of these books, feel free to give your extra copy to a friend. Next week's sale will be another good one (and don't worry - there's no overlap)!
