Come, Follow Me reader’s edition

Just released the Come, Follow Me reader’s edition. It’s an experimental supplemental edition of the Book of Mormon:

As for what it actually is: it’s a set of web pages with the text of the Book of Mormon grouped into the Come, Follow Me sections, and it’s reparagraphed sans verse numbers like my normal reader’s edition.

I have no idea whether it’s actually useful or not, but it was quick enough to make that I figured I may as well just do it. Let me know what you think.

Book of Mormon line edition prototype

This one is experimental, exploring a punctuationless Book of Mormon to recreate in some small measure the original dictation. I’ve capitalized proper names and have broken the text into sense lines to make it readable. The second page of 2 Nephi 2 (PDF):

Feedback appreciated.

(The idea came from two sources: Royal Skousen’s Yale edition, which is broken into sense lines, and an email Zander Sturgill sent me a year ago about his punctuation-free Book of Mormon.)
