Default Google Play Books sucking Battery

I just recently purchased a Nexus 7 and received it a couple days ago and have been loving it. Today, just looking at the battery section I noticed that Google Play Books is sucking down my battery at 56% which is interesting since I've never even opened the app. Is there anyway to stop or prevent this? I am unlocked and rooted on the stock rom. Thanks!

I've got the same thing, hopefully the 4.4.3 update will fix it...

If you don't use the app, its safe to uninstall.

So for reference of anybody else having the same issue, I disabled Play Books in the settings and uninstalled. After restarting my device the app reinstalled and enabled itself but I am no longer having the issue of it sucking up my battery.
