    This book shows up on my iBooks shelf but I am unable to open it. Every time I tap on it, it kicks me out of iBooks. Is there a fix available for this?

    This is a very easy to read book on fermentation. The selection of recipes and their clear instructions show a wide variety of interesting foods. I am excited to try out a few that I had never thought to produce from my kitchen. The soda section is intriguing as I am always looking for more healthy choices.
