Calibre does two things when sending a book to the device:
1) Copy the book(s) to the file system
2) Update the database with the collections (I'm Reading and Read)
The second is a fairly efficient database update. You can check the job details to see which stage it taking the most time.
I would guess copying the books to the device is the most time consuming. You are basically limited by the speed of the USB bus and the speed of the flash memory on the device.
I don't know the speed to the storage on the device but at less than 150 dollars for the device I can guess that it is fairly slow.
I just copied a 256 meg file to the device in Linux and it took over 8 minutes and that was from the Linux command line (with no movies of moving paper to slow it down...)
