Yes, that's the default in fact. If you are using the Book or Full Screen theme (not Scrolling) then just drag from the right side of the screen to the left side to have the page turn. It does this for standard ePub books (like novels, etc). But text books will behave as the author intended, with sliding or scrolling, etc.
I just realized I was viewing a PDF and not a book. PDF's slide from page to page. Books simulate a page turn.
Why can't I read my iBooks on my MacBook Air or on my iMac?
You need the iBooks app to read books bought in the iBookstore. It is only for iOS, not for Macs. No idea if Apple is planning to do it for Macs in the future.
I have an iMac and use Kindle for books, but I'm an Apple-bigot and would prefer to use a version of iBook written for the iMac ... ((<: }
Is there an option to use a finger gesture to turn the page but have it actually look like a page is turning? I know my calendar simulates the page turn when I swipe to switch to a different month but I didn't see that option for iBooks.
