This version makes that even easier with some added paragraph breaks for easier reading and long passage of prophetic poetry retypset in verse form. This is what I'm having my own kids read.
For those looking for a paperback or plain-text, digital edition for Kindles or other e-readers:
Until Amazon starts carrying the paperback, your best bet is the typesetter's website: [...]. The digital versions are free downloads, and the paperback is $10 + shipping and handling. Not bad.
Of course there are all sorts of differences between Scripture and a novel. A novel carries the same plot from beginning to end. 1 Nephi has a single plot yet 2 Nephi jumps around with different authors and no real "story". In some instances, an entire subject is covered in just a few sentences.
But as I think about it, part of the problem seems to be the way books are divided into chapters. As I read, I read a chapter at a time. In a Harry Potter book, the entire book will encompass 30 or so chapters while the Book of Mormon has over 200 for a similar span of pages.
This edition of the Book of Mormon removes the chapters and verses, leaving just the text formatted in a familiar way. Now as I read my natural chapter-at-a-time pace, I can read many pages as in a single sitting, which has allowed me to see connections between the various chapters that I had always missed reading single chapters.
While having a copy of the Book of Mormon divided into chapters and verses is important, reading it without this markers makes it easier to keep reading. Take for example King Benjamin's speech. It spans multiple chapters in Mosiah yet was delivered in a single address. By removing the chapters, it is easier to read it as a single sitting, just as it was given.
I would recommend this book for anyone seeking to find a new perspective on their understanding of the Book of Mormon.
