There are a few NOOKbooks that cannot be transfered over 3G because they are too large. It appears thar 10 megabytes is the cutoff point.
For larger files, you'll either need to download via Wi-Fi (B&N, McDonalds, Starbucks, or any AT&T hotspot are all free), or download it to your computer and then sideload into the 'my documents' folder on your NOOK.
Notes on the sideloading approach: if you download to a PC by using the "download" button on the Web page, the file name might cause NOOK 1.5 to refuse to open the NOOKbook. I recommend downloading using NOOK for PC. If you download to a Mac, you'll get eReader PDB files, which should still work fine on NOOK. Also, download to the computer first, then sideload to your NOOK; sometimes if you try to download directly to NOOK the NOOKbook won't open.
