    Yes. You can use Home Sharing for that. Check out http://macmost.com/sharing-ios-apps-with-family.html
    That tutorial is about apps, but you can use Home Sharing for music, videos and books too.

    I just did it another way. I purchased a book from the iBook store and read it. My wife tapped the iBook icon on her iPad and went to the store in the app. She scrolled down to the bottom of the page, selected her iTunes account and signed out. She then signed in with mine. Searched on the book I read, and instead of purchase, the option was to download. Worked fine. She’s never purchased a book, don’t know how messy that gets if she had.
