"When others see coincedence I see conspiracy!"
Yeh, that's an MI6 agents motto in Scorpia( One of the books in the Alex Rider series, pretty good books). Well for me these were my steps.
step 1: Read the Hobbit.
Step 2: Read the Lord of the Rings
Step 3: Read Silmarillion
Step 4: Read Unfinished Tales
Step 5: Read The History of Middle-Earth series
Step 6 Watched the Extended edition of The Lord of the Rings
Step 7: Found Planet Tolkien
Step 8: Starting to learn Quenya
I wonder what I'll be doing next? :D
