how long does it take to downoad a book?

how long does it take to download a book?

 

Does it take longer on wi-fi than 3G to download a book directly onto your nook?

It's very quick, almost instant. It doesn't make any difference if you're using WiFi or 3G.

when I do demos at the store I show people how quick it is. 

From the start of the search, to typing in a book title to purchase, then downloading and openning to read takes about a minute!

3G is definitely slower but it still only takes a few seconds to download a book.

In a few cases, the book can only be downloaded through WiFi but in that case the book will tell that.
Help me down the crooked road. Lead me to the light. I'm not sure I know the way but with you beside me, I'm certain we'll make it through.

Re: how long does it take to downoad a book?

I am downloading my first book via wifi at home and it's been working for about 15 minutes now.  Doesn't show up on my account as a purchase.  I guess I'll figure this all out.  Any advice?

It's usually much faster than than. On rare occasions transactions are delayed for a while. In addition to eBook purchases showing up when you log into B&N's web site expect an eMail reporting your purchase and any charges, even the $0.00 charge for free books.
