    I have a question about the the order of the books. I am not sure if I am in the right forum but, I have just finished reading The Silmarillion. What should I read next? Unfinished Tales or go right into the Book of Lost Tales? Any ideas? Thanks

    I'm gonna assume you've read all of LOTR and the hobbit. :)

    I'd recommend reading either the Book of Lost Tales or the Unfinished Tales. BoLT 1 starts the whole History of Middle Earth series.

    Personally, I liked the Unfinished Tales better than BoLT 1 or BoLT 2. But they're all good books with lots of information.

    Id say go for Unfinished tales next as a lot (if not all) of it is associated with The Silmarillion
