dawn_felagund had a nice post at Tumblr looking at what books by JRRT people should read after the Hobbit and LOTR. I added my own recommendations. It's quite good, I think.

And now I'm thinking what I really need to do is create a kind of map to Tolkien's writings - what sources connect to which stories, that kind of thing. Or something. I just don't know I'm familiar enough with the Elves stuff to do that part justice, but maybe I could lay the framework out and let other people make suggestions and add them in after I'm done.

Or maybe I'm just being a geek and this is fine. Sometimes I'm such a hobbit, wanting my books with facts laid out neatly. GFIC exchange piece first, though.

The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien really is a must-read. And Splintered Light by Verlyn Flieger has been a wealth of inspiration to me for fic.
