Trying to find the Ladder of Divine Ascent

If you can't find the Holy Transfiguration translation, there is also a paperback from Paulist Press in their Classics of Western Spirituality series out there.

Yes I heard about that version, but all of the Orthodox reviews I have read do not speak very highly of it... Have you by chance read both versions? I'd really like to read it through Lent, but the HTM version is not available on their site again until after Lent is over...

Talking about how to buy books online. Does anyone know of a North American online source for the books of Alexandros Papadiamantis?

On used texts, particularly those from larger collections, windowsbooks.com is a great resource. I've been able to source individual volumes of the Ante, Nicene, and Post-Nicene Fathers in great condition for $11 each. Orders over $20 get a 10% discount, which basically covers tax/shipping.
Good ole Amazon.com is also typically great on the more 'popular' titles. They have a convenient trade-in policy that allows you to trade in DVDs, books, and electronics for store credit. I was able to get rid of a ton of dust-gathering college books on an unused shelf, and use the proceeds to buy Orthodox titles.

In my opinion, it is not translated as well as the one from Holy Transfiguration Monastery. Although I did not use a critical Greek text at the time, when I compared them back in the 1980s, I found the translation from HTM to be more Orthodox Christian in phronema than the one from PP.
I have the one from the Paulist Press. Why is't it good?
I hope this helps!
