I'd start with the book containing what interested me the most... [In reply to] Can't Post

... be it Elves, the lay of Beren and Lúthien, or the LotR background. I personally found HoMEs 1 and 2 bewildering with the utterly strange or mixed-up pre-Silmarillion names, so I read the last volumes first (as I was interested in the discussions of Elves and their natures present in 10 and 12), and returned to the first ones afterwards. It was much less cofusing for me that way.

"A journalist once asked me what I would like my epitaph to be and I said I think I would like it to be 'He did very little harm'. And that's not easy. Most people seem to me to do a great deal of harm. If I could be remembered as having done very little, that would suit me." ~ Paul Eddington
