Yup, that´s exactly what I was looking for... [In reply to] Can't Post

...so thanks a lot. Smile Most people seem to agree on reading The Silmarillion first (with CoH inserted appropriately), but I will definitely check out each of your suggestions along the way and then decide on the spot whether that alternate/additional text works for me or not. Since all of your suggestions come from Unfinished Tales, and due to the more "scholarly" nature of HoME, I will leave the HoME books alone for this first read of the material, as you all seem to agree upon, and buy them later if I still want to read more after finishing the five basic books (TS, UT, CoH, TH, LOTR).

I will also return here to tell you how it went for me, so that others who come after me might take this or a different road.
