One of the most important translations to be released in recent years is the NETS translation of the Septuagint. Since the text of the New English Translation of the Septuagint is freely available, it's legal in my jurisdiction (the Russian Federation) to create a Personal Book.

Adjusting the Bible reference milestones so that they all align correctly with verses from Hebrew-based versions was a major undertaking for me. There might be some mistakes - please let me know if you find any.

Make sure the use of this is OK where you live before downloading. Depending on applicable legislation in your area, you may need to fulfill certain requirements in order to use this.  If Logos ever does release this critically important Septuagint work, I'll eagerly buy it immediately, and this file will become unavailable and all copies deleted.

Until step 2 is completed, this version is rather unsuited for reading large passages but is quite usable for text comparisons, popups, etc.

Todo list:

1) Fix the Letter of Jeremiah reference milestones (any help? Whatever I use, LJe1, LJe 1, LJe 1:1, Baruch 6:1, none of these work).

2) Add table of contents milestones for books and chapters, then remove the full reference titles before each verse (which is irritating but necessary at the moment) 

3) Insert the introductory material and book introductions.

4) Write a macro to add all of the footnotes.

5) Mark Hebrew reference numbers (in parentheses) so that they're no longer considered Bible text.

Please let me know if you find any problems or want to help out.

The peace of Christ be with you all! ~Pete

If you use @BibleLXX instead of @Bible references, Logos should take care of this automagically.  I did a quick Search and Replace, but this causes some different problems where you already corrected things to the Hebrew-based versions.
