You don't need to download them other than on the Nook. Your Nook must be registered to the same account.
Make sure you did a "check for new B&N content" on your Nook. You might also want to reboot your Nook. If the book doesn't at least show up then in your list of books, then consider contacting CS.

Just got my Nook for Father's Day and I love it!
FWIW I find it easy to search for and buy books on my computer. It's easier to search the catalog on a 19inch full color screen as opposed to my Nook. I make my purchases and then search for new content with Nook to download. Works every time.

I got my nook today and I love it. However, one book that was downloaded on to my nook will not open. It just says loading on the screen. I tried redownloading the book and it's doing the same thing. Is it possible it could be corrupted. It was only 0.99 but still. Any help is appreciated.

Try Archiving the book.
Then move the cursor to a different book, and touch "Check for new B&N Content"
When the title of the book you Archived greys out, Unarchive it. Then you can download a fresh copy.
This solves many "unable to open" problems. If it doesn't solve yours, call Customer Service, Option 2, Digital Support. You may have a corrupted file.

If archiving and redownloading doesn't work you may be seeing the positioning bug that the nook has with some books. With that bug the Nook hangs during opening or loading of the book.
Two workarounds. The first is fast but ends up with the book in the wrong area of your Nook Library.
1) From a PC, take a copy of the book from your My b&n Download folder on the nook and place it in my Documents folder of the Nook.
2) Install the B&N PC Desktop reader, register and download the book in question. Open the book on the PC and go to chapter 2. Go back to the my libary tab and perform a sync with the B&N server (the square button with a counter clockwise arrow). Reboot your NOOK (necessary if it has a background task still trying to open the book). Open your library to your B&N content and do a "check for new B&N Content". The book should now open on the Nook.
