Wisdom's Middle Length Discourses in .epub or .pdf

Postby BKh » Tue Jun 07, 2011 1:57 pm

I'm wondering if anyone has purchased the epub or pdf versions of the Wisdom Publications edition of the Middle Length Discourses of the Buddha or any of the books in the Word of the Buddha series. I'm not talking about the Kindle/mobi edition but the .epub to be read on something like a Nook. I found this site

http://www.ebooks.com/565473/the-middle-length-discourses-of-the-buddha/nanamoli-bhikkhu-trans--bodhi-bhikkhu-trans/

and according to Wisdom it is legit. I'm just wondering if anyone has experience with it, e.g. how well is it formatted, are the footnotes hyper-linked, can you clip passages to a text file, etc. If you have the pdf, is it searchable?

Just bumping this thread to see if anyone has had some experience with getting Word of the Buddha series epubs. I found The Connected Discourses here...

but the customer support person didn't have any experience getting it onto an actual device.
