Where might I learn more about Dwarves? Can't Post

Hi there,

I am a big fan of LOTR and the Hobbit, but I would consider myself to be, at best, a Tolkien neophyte (the two books I just mentioned being the only of his works I've actually read so far).

That being said, I am looking to branch out into more of his works now, but there is so much I am not sure where to begin.

In the first instance, one of the races I have been most interested in while reading Tolkien so far is that of the Dwarves. Therefore, would anyone be able to point me in the direction of any Tolkien works that deal more extensively with the history of Dwarves? I am sure they are discussed a bit in the Silmarillion (which is at the top of my list to buy next) and in some of the 'History of Middle-Earth' volumes, but I'd appreciate if anyone could help me narrow down anything where I can find out most about the Dwarves.

Many thanks!
