VoiceOver Reading of PDFs in iBooks different in iOS5?

iOS and iPadOS
Hi. i'm new to the site and love it. Been using iOS's accessibility since the beginning, and I got used to iOS 4. But now I've found something weird, and I hope the community can explain what's going on.
I bought an eBook (in PDF format) about a month ago and used iBooks to read it as I could utilize the full feature set of Voice Over unlike in Good Reader. I was able to drag one finger anywhere on the document and choose what to read, then drag two fingers down to read from there. In the new release of iOS 5, the only thing I can do is start from the beginning of every page. I can still do this in Safari with web pages, using 1 finger to choose a spot and swiping with a finger to go word by word/section by section or 2 fingers down to read continuously, etc. But not in iBooks.
Is this a setting I just had on before and didn't know. Or is this a new implementation of how PDFs are read in iBooks and I'm screwed?
