Buss translation of Count of Monte Cristo

Has anyone found this as an ebook???
Books on Board claims to have it, but after buying it I find that, NOPE! It is a totally different translation! I specifically want the Buss translation, no other. I tried reading another translation (the free one on Guetenberg) but could not get into it at all. I decided to give it another go, and tried the pbook of the Buss translation. I love it!! But I am sick of carrying it around. It isn't exactly small, and it's getting some damage from my purse. I'd love the ebook version, but cannot find it!!!

It is available at Amazon in the US: The Count of Monte Cristo (Penguin Classics eBook). If the link does not work it is ASIN: B002RI9KL8.

In the US, this isn't explicitly attributed to Robin Buss but in the UK he is credited with the Introduction. In the UK it is at Amazon and also as an ePub at WHSmith. So it may be available as an ePub in the US also.

The ISBN of the epub edition of this particular translation is 9780141901251. Check this against any listing you are considering to ensure you are getting the edition you want.

Here is Kobo's listing for this book: here. I'm outside the US so can't confirm is this is an edition you can buy.

This has the Penguin cover page, but it is by Simon & Schuster and does not seem to be the same as the Kindle version. Kobo also has the Penguin version and this seems to be the right one (copyright Robin Buss).

My mistake. Your link gets me "not available" in the US. My link appears to be the same ebook in the US.

It's easy. Remove the DRM (if you do look on google you'll find out how), and add it to Calibre. Then convert to Epub. That's how I did it

Books on board has the epub, http://www.booksonboard.com/index.ph...ook&BOOK=96392
Epub cost more than their other formats though ($10.50). Their "Adobe Digital Edition" (pdf I assume?) version has a different ISBN but costs much cheaper ($2.50).

Hmm, no epub for me, only PDF and Microsoft Reader. So, I'd say that depends on where you live.

Thanks much for the link! After reading some reviews I've bought the Buss trans. for Kindle.

I bought the paper back of that version a couple of years ago (Before I had and Ereader) and it was a really good edition.
