Reader's Edition of the Book of Mormon

Ben Crowder has put together a "Reader's Edition" of the Book of Mormon. Ben writes, "this particular copy of the text came from Project Gutenberg; I removed the verse numbers and reorganized it according to the chapters in the first edition (with two or three small exceptions), then reparagraphed it to flow with the text." (link added).
The result is a copy of the Book of Mormon that reads more like a novel or a history. In my opinion this would be a great way for someone not familiar with the book to approach it, and for someone who has read it many times, it provides a refreshing and enjoyable experience with an old friend. Nuances that you might miss among all the verses show up in this narrative form. Overall, as I've read through several chapters in Alma, the text flows more smoothly.
You can download the finished product as a PDF (2.1M) or purchase a hard copy from lulu.com
