I like the idea of a cover view to compliment list view, but I hate the there are only three books on screen that way due to the recommendations at the bottom of the screen. List view looks pretty much the same as on previous devices.
When you turn the device on does the light come on by default? In other words, if you were to turn it on in a darkened room would the light be on by default?
