Just as many people are doing their back-to-school shopping, Amazon.com’s website crashed for the better part of an hour Monday.

The downed site was first noted at 2:48 p.m. ET Monday on Twitter. It was online around 3:35 p.m.

Amazon.com showed a sense of humor while its site and mobile apps were down briefly Monday afternoon. The website showed this page, including covers of children’s books titled “I’m Sorry My Bad,” “Oops!” and the video “Grave Mistake.”

White the website was down, users either received a broken link or were given the message, “Oops. We’re very sorry, but we’re having trouble doing what you just asked us to do. Please give us another chance — click the Back button on your browser and try your request again. Or start from the beginning on our homepage.”

Amazon’s apps for Android and the iPhone also were down during the same period, either not responding, having slow uploads and not allowing users to put items in their shopping carts.

The Web tracking site downforeveryoneorjustme.com reported at 3:30 p.m. that Amazon had crashed. Amazon’s apps for Android, above, and iOS were down during the outage.
