About the Author
Mary Baker Eddy (1821-1910) was an influential American author, teacher, and religious leader. She is noted for her groundbreaking ideas about spirituality and healing, which she based on the Bible, particularly Christ Jesus' words and works. This system of healing, which she denominated Christian Science, puts into action all that she learned from her Bible study. Her ideas are fully articulated in her major work, the best-seller Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, first published in 1875. In 1879, she founded the Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, which today has branch churches and societies around the world. She established her church "to commemorate the word and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing." In 1908 she launched The Christian Science Monitor, a leading international newspaper, the recipient, to date, of seven Pulitzer Prizes. At her passing, hundreds of tributes appeared in newspapers around the world, including The Boston Globe, which wrote, "She did a wonderful--an extraordinary work in the world and there is no doubt that she was a powerful influence for good."

After working closely with some users having this issue, here are some conclusions and work arounds for this issue.
- It appears to be related to iOS5. One of our users is having this issue on her iPad 2 with iBooks 2 and iOS5, but is not having the issue on her iPhone 4S with iBooks 2 and iOS4.
- It also seems to be related to certain font sizes, or changing the font size, in particular fonts.
--Palatino (Apple's default font) seems to crash the most.
--Iowan and Georgia also seem to be fairly prone to crashing.
--Athelas, Charter, and Times New Roman all seem to be fairly stable.
So, in conclusion:
-If you haven't upgraded to iOS5 yet, don't.
-Do upgrade to iBooks 2.
-Make sure you are using Athelas, Charter, or Times New Roman as your font before opening these books.
If you do these things, you should be pretty successful in being able to avoid crashing iBooks when opening these books.
