    Quick question- I have one new ipad2 in the household. Eventually I might get a second ipad. I realize there is something called "Home Sharing". For sharing books/music is this pretty easy to use with two itunes accounts or should I just plan on sharing a single itunes account?

    Thoughts pro or con? Or good links appreciated.
    Thanks!

    I would share one account, because you are allowed to use all your apps and stuff on ALL compatible devices on that account. (iOS apps on iOS devices, Mac apps on all your Macs).

    You can also share Kindle books on multiple iPads if you purchase the on the same account.

    So, can it be assumed that Home Sharing does not work so good? Or does that only apply to books and not apps? Thanks!

    Not quite. If it's the one household, either authorise the other account to use your stuff, or just have the one account, and sync what you want on each device.

    I thought home sharing was for audio and video files.

    It is, for mobile devices. I think it can sync apps and books between machines, but it can't "stream" books to an iPad (AFAIK).
