Two monkeys one brain! I'm going to read the Quran too. But comments here and here (I know you're looking at those threads too) have convinced me that I need some background reading first.
The Oxford University Press edition contains extensive notes in the Preface concerning the origins of Qu'ran, the various English translations, and a bit of historical background into the life of Muhammad and the major Islamic traditions. It seems to me to be an excellent place to start.
