TidBITS: Hey, iBooks, Where Did All My Books Go?

iBooks on iPad - your books may disappear! Be careful...

Matt Neuberg’s books disappeared when he moved to a new iPad. Matt writes for the fine and venerable TidBITS site, and here explains some troubling and baffling behavior on his new device:

The trouble is, of course, that Apple is wrong. Books are not like songs in the iOS universe: the entire analogy is artificial, and breaks down when confronted with practical reality — as it did in my case…. The upshot is that I lost my books, and if you’re managing books manually, you might lose yours too, unless you’re careful. Plan ahead.
