    Why is it that when I try to install some books to read in the "Books" app, they don't show up?

    They seem to install just fine.

    Is it all books or just some?

    All books. I installed the books app, then installed Lessig's book, and nothing. I thought maybe it was just that book so I added a new source and installed another book, and again, it didn't show up.

    I have the same problem, using 8gb 1.1.4JB.
    have tried Books.app from two different sources, no fix.

    I'm also looking for a solution to this problem.

    I'm on 16GB 1.14jb ZiPhone itouch.

    I seem to have all the correct symlinks. To move the books to the media folder to /private/var/mobile/Media

    The weird thing is I can install iphysics packs to the same iphysicas folder inside the media folder, but I can't install books to the Ebook folder inside the media folder

    The folder should be
    /var/mobile/Media/EBooks
