    You can't connect the two iPads directly. What you have to do is connect your iPad 2 to iTunes on your computer and back it up. Then, when activating your iPad mini, you will be asked if you want to set it up as a new iPad or use the backup you created. Choose to use the iPad 2 backup and everything that was on your iPad 2 will be transferred to your iPad mini, including the books.

    You must have accidentally switched to the US store. To switch back go to Settings>iTunes & App Store and tap on your Apple ID. When the pop up appears, select sign out, then sign back in, you should then be in the Australian iTunes. Now try tapping on the cloud symbols on your books, they should now download.

    There's no need to sign out and back in to do this.....just view your Apple ID, you will then be asked for your password and you will be back in your proper store.
