Just got Unfinished Tales out of the library Can't Post

Hope I put this topic in the right place. I wasn't sure whether it belonged here or in Reading Room, but it's more of a general question than a critical discussion. Anyway...

I went to the library the other day to look for Silmarillion (as a relative newbie I haven't read anything other than LoTR and The Hobbit yet), but the copies were checked out. There was a copy of UT, though, which I did get out. My question is: having not read the Silmarillion will there be parts of UT that won't make sense yet? In my brief look-through of the chapters I saw some that I think will be of interest based on my reading LotR and TH:

The History of Galadriel and Celeborn
The Quest for Erebor
The Hunt for the Ring
Cirion and Eorl and the Friendship of Gondor and Rohan
The Battles of the Fords of Isen
The Palantirí

What is the opinion of my more knowledgeable Tolkien fans? Any other chapters I should read? Any I should leave out? Or should I just go for it and read the whole thing? Thanks! Smile
