    Not Bad

    The formatting is a little odd at points (Eavana swapped for Ravana, for instance) but it's a good, readable translation. And it's free. Get this and the Red Pine translation and read them both. This sutra represents the essence of Zen thought.

    Funny thing about that Lanka

    It's still a pleasure to read D. T. Suzuki. The Lankavatara Sutra is a key text for the meditation school of Mahayana Buddhism. The publisher is kind to make this important, old translation available. (At this writing, in English it's this or the translation by Red Pine.) The text is pretty clean. The NOOK version has some intermixing of text and note lines, but it's not bad. Use the bookmarking function to mark chapters.
