I recently finished reading The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit. For Christmas I recieved quite a few J.R.R. Tolkien books: The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, and the entire Histories of Middle Earth collection. I was just wondering if any of you could perhaps advise me on which to read first, if any would be more useful to do so as to provide better understanding or something along those lines. Thank you for any advise!
