The Gadgeteer is reporting that the Sony Reader site buckled under the load. This was caused not only by downloading books, but, the Gadgeteer says, because the Readers that had been shipped required a software update to the Reader Library before they could download books. The site says its working now.
Engadget says that B&N’s Nook site was also overloaded and new Nook owners were unable to download books on their new devices.
