Book Question

I've read The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and I'm reading The Silmarillion now, so my question is what should I read next? The History of Middle-Earth or Unfinished Tales?

I'd go UT first, then HoME. It was published first and it'll get you prepared for the format of HoME. Good luck!

Precisely. Hob, LotR, Sil, UT, HoME. :)
But I think it's way too slack a term to say 'read the HoME'. The damn thing is twelve volumes long! And each volume is about 500 pages long!! Insanity.. I'm almost halfway through the Narn i Hîn Húrin in UT, and it's fab.

I'm reading the LOTR again, so the whole storyline can be fresh in my memory when I go and start reading the Sil.

thanks for the pointer though, UT will be my next before the 12 volumes of HoME.
