Here are some books about the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith. (Written from a faithful persepctive.)
Doubleday edition of The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ (Hardcover). ISBN 038551316X. This is a recent, but not the current, official edition of the Book of Mormon, without footnotes, and it has no index. Has a pronouncing guide, and a brief reference guide in the back.
Original 1830 edition. paperback. ISBN: 0976402513.
Joseph Smith: Rough Stone Rolling (Paperback) Richard Lyman Bushman. ISBN: 1400077532. I like this book. It’s written from a faithful perspective, and from a scholarly perspective that makes it palatable for non-members to get an even-handed and non-proselyting delivery of the story of Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon. If you (LDS or non-LDS) have an intellectual curiosity about the history of Joseph Smith and the early church, this is the book for you.
The Book of Mormon: A Reader’s Edition (Paperback) Grant Hardy (Editor). ISBN: 025207341X. This book is the 1830 edition (no break-down into verses), typeset in a way that makes for easy reading, and sets aparts the quotes. The “reading appearance” makes it more of a regular read as opposed to “reading scripture.”
The Book of Mormon: A Reader’s Edition (Hardcover) Grant Hardy (Editor). ISBN: 0252027973.
The Book of Mormon Movie – Volume 1 – The Journey. Most of it is cheesey and unprofessional, but it’s a landmark. Some of the scenes are real groaners, but this movie was a major step taken in dramatizing the Book of Mormon. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND buying this for historical purposes. And, there are actually a couple good scenes in it. ASIN: B0002ER5VQ. Also look for it on ebay.

Book of Mormon: 1830 Replica Edition (Leather Bound). ISBN: 0929753208.
The Book of Mormon – The Earliest Text. Edited by Royal Skousen. ISBN: 0300142188. “Royal Skousen has single-handedly brought the textual analysis of the Book of Mormon to a professional level on par with the finest classical and biblical scholarship. This volume is the culmination of his labors, and it is the most textually significant edition since Joseph Smith’s work was first published in 1830. It takes us back to the original manuscript (as best we can reconstruct it) and sometimes beyond, to the very words that were first spoken by Joseph Smith to his scribes.”-Grant Hardy, from the Introduction. == Completely redesigned and typeset by nationally award-winning typographer Jonathan Saltzman, this new edition has been reformatted in sense-lines, making the text much more logical and pleasurable to read. Featuring a lucid introduction by historian Grant Hardy, the Yale edition serves not only as the most accurate version of the Book of Mormon ever published but also as an illuminating entryway into a vital religious tradition.
