          Same for me, It eventually starts up but is completely blank. And does not see my ebook or audiobook collections (from iTunes). If I start it with the ctrl+ key it then asks me to drag a iTunes collection over to merge but that doesn't seem to do anything either.

           

          So I am wondering because it crashed initially is there some blank Books Collection somewhere that I need to delete.

              Thanks jeromeof

              for the reply.

              Initially it started and was open less than a second. I opened

              Systems Preferences / Apple ID / iCloud / iCloud Drive / options

              and removed the checkmark on Books and afterwards added it again

               

              After I did this the Book app crahes immediatley.

               

              I looked up in the console app / system log and get the following:

               

              Books[1802]: objc[1802]: Class asn1OSToken is implemented in both /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/CommerceKit.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/CommerceCore.framework/Versions/A/CommerceCore (0x7fff8d928410) and /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/CoreFP.framework/Versions/A/CoreFP (0x1154ab3d0). One of the two will be used. Which one is undefined.

               

              I am not sure if this conflict in the two pathes causes the crashing.

                    Helped me. Thanks!

                    I just "removed the checkmark on Books..." and did not "... afterwards added it again".

                  Same here. Updating to Beta 7 made it work. :-)

                    It finally opened after crashing, but it repeatedly asks me to log in with my Apple ID.

                      I have the same problem after updating to Catalina (official release, not beta).

                      No more Books app.

                       

                      In the console, I get 5-6 messages like the following:

                       

                      Class ...... is implemented in both /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/CommerceKit.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/CommerceCore.framework/Versions/A/CommerceCore (0x......) and /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/CoreFP.framework/Versions/A/CoreFP (0x.....). One of the two will be used. Which one is undefined.

                       

                      No, haven't regretted updating

                          I have the same problem after updating to Catalina official release. The message cited "Class..... is implemented in both...." is logged on my machine for: Excel,CoreServices, SyncedDefaults, CommercialCore. Besides this, I have intermittently got a failed touristd process running every minute and something called "AMMuxedDeviceDisconnected" errors. This is seriously slowing down my system. Luckily have my Linux machine still running.

                           

                          Not amused.
