It will be a reread for me. But I read it in English the first time.

We have an edition in the Patrica Clark Memorial Library as well - Verne, Jules: Around the World in 80 Days. v2. 14th Feb 2010

If you want a kepub or other format, Standard Ebooks also has a very nice edition.

The version I am reading is translated by Michael Glencross. It's Pengun Classics version.

The version in the library (IMHO) is not as good as the one i am reading from my quick compare. Also, there is no translator listed. I don't like the wording as much. Also, the Standard Ebook version I don't like for the same reason as the one in the library.

I've had a look at the Oxford World's Classics version and I do like that one as well. It's similar to the Penguin version and is translated by Willam Butcher.
