Your sentences with "both" are both wrong. Neither book is interesting. Both books are boring. Not everybody likes it....is not the same as....Everybody doesn't like it. It;s the same in Chinese: 不都 and 都不。

Correction: "Both books are interesting" OR "Neither book is interesting" "Not everyone likes it" is correct.
