I got myself an IPAD 3G when it came out and at the time the only way to get iBooks was to register using a US itunes account. Many instructions available on how to do this....

Now that IPAD is coming to NZ:
1. Can anyone confirm if you can buy iBooks using a kiwi itunes account?
2. Can you 'associate' the IPAD to a NZ itunes account given you have already conencted using a US account?

Apologise if these seem to be silly questions.

1. Yes, it's available to download for free from the NZ iTunes Store, and has been for a couple months now.  
2. When you sync it with iTunes it'll tell you it's already linked to another library and ask you if you want to associate it with the NZ account.

There are no books for sale on the NZ iTunes store, only free ones.
I think you'd possibly lose what you've already got, but unless you've already bought things with the US account just make a new NZ one and sync.
