I Need Help with the Books App
I am totally blind, and I use the Books App with VoiceOver.
To help with entertainment challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Books App is offering free and paid iPub digital downloads of books.
After downloading some iBooks, I noticed that with VoiceOver, the app will only read one page at the time. Instead of swiping down as I usually do, with one finger, I have to swipe up. It is as if the page nomenclature is upside down!
I am asking you to please fix the problem.
I did not only try to read the new downloaded books, but also other iBooks I have accumulated over the years, and the problem is exactly the same.
Please help.

This is how books is laid out. swipe up where the page numbers element is to advanced the pages. Swipe left to hear the name of the book you are reading. If there is text on the page such as introduction or table of contents VoiceOver will start reading it. To continuously read the book and have the pages advance automatically perform a two finger swipe down. If you have haptic feedback enabled your phone will vibrate when the page is changed.
