All the books listed above are great, two more suggestions:

"River to Rim" by Nancy Brian-break down of the river mile by mile with historical descrptions (who/what/why).
"Colorado River Briefs for a trip through the Grand Canyon," Linda Lou Lindemann-great diagrams of the rapids with high/low water routes, also mileage breakdown of interesting points and some basic geology info.

Have a great trip

River and desert Plants of the Grand Canyon

River and Desert Plants of the Grand Canyon by Kristin Huisinga and Lori Mackarick. Great pictures for identification, medicinal qualities, etc. Lori's the parks tireless Vegetation Program Manager so she knows her topsoil.

Grand Canyoneering

The recently released Grand Canyoneering by Todd Martin is phenomenal.
