Delete the iBook application from your iPad and redownload it from AppStore. Let me know if that didn't worked. Only click Accept after it worked.

All my apps are not loading not just the iBooks
Expert:  Ashik replied 5 years ago.
Connect your iPad to your computer, open iTunes application. In iTunes, select your ipad and click Restore. Then let it restore your iPad. This should fix the problem. Let me know if that didn't worked....

Can you try this from another computer, if possible ?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I only have one computer here at home? Will I have to take it to an apple store to get fixed?
Expert:  Ashik replied 5 years ago.
Before that we can try a different method to restore. Put your iPad to DFU (Device Firmware Upgrade) Mode and restore it from iTunes. Follow the steps below;
  • Connect the iPad to your computer with the USB Cable.
  • Open iTunes application on your computer
  • Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time.
  • After exactly 8 seconds release the Sleep/Wake button. Continue holding the home button until your iTunes shows a message telling you that it has detected an iPad in recovery mode.
  • Click OK or Restore



Note : Put it to DFU Mode while connected to computer and also in DFU Mode your iPad will remain blank.

Let me know if that didn't worked..

Best Regards,
Ashik

What/where is the sleep/wake button?
Expert:  Ashik replied 5 years ago.
It is the Power button
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
All that did was switch my computer off and send it in to safe mode....did I do something wrong?
Expert:  Ashik replied 5 years ago.
What ?? You have to press the button of your iPad, not your PC.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
You did not explain that... I will try again... Home button on the computer and sleek/wake on the iPad
Expert:  Ashik replied 5 years ago.
Please read my answer carefully...I explained it. You don't have to press anything your PC. We're fixing your iPad, not your PC. Press both buttons on your iPad.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
You explained I had to connect my iPad to the computer..... You did not mention I had to use the buttons on the iPad! If I were that good with a computer/iPad/whatever I wouldn't be talking to you!!! When my computer is finished running through it's safe mode/whatever the he'll it's doing, I will try again!! In the meantime I will head back to work. Thanks again fornyou time. Will be in touch.
Expert:  Ashik replied 5 years ago.
Only iPad got the Sleep/Wake and Home button in here. We don't use that word for PCs. I thought you knew that...Anyway, try it and let me know
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Wonders on wonder-it's working- the apps I have checked are up and running and I can read my book.
Thank you for your help.
