  • Double tap the home button
  • Swipe from left to right
  • Tap the speaker icon to the far left
  • It should show “Mute Off” below the play button
  • Listen to app sound once again
This should fix the sound issue on iPad app.

My iPad is running 6.1.3 iOS and the button on the left is for locking the orientation and not muting the sound. Also I do not have sound on only one of my ebooks and not all of them. I did open the volume panel with the ebook open and I still was unable to get sound.
When you double tap the home button and swipe to the right at the bottom of the screen - do you see the round button on the volume slider next to the Music Icon

Alternate: Go to Settings and change the function of the Side Switch from "Lock Rotation" to "Mute", then toggle the side switch. This should fix most common bug with the lock rotation switch.

If the problem still exists, Please re-start the iPad and access the app.
