Issue with VoiceOver and Books App on iPadOS 15.1

iOS and iPadOS

Has anyone else found that They can no longer use Voice Over to read out books in the Books app in iPad OS15.1. When I do the two finger swipe down gesture, instead of reading the text, it just flicks through a numver of pages. When I touch the text on the screen, it also doesn’t speak the text. Page chooser, book mark, table of contents etc still work, it just won’t read the book. If anyone has a solution, I’d be very appreciative as I really miss being able to use this app.
