I have read the Tolkien Reader, and I loved it. If you haven't read that I would recommend that. I have also read the book that has Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Pearl, and Sir Orfeo. I would also recomment those. But first, if you haven't read HOME, I would tell you to read that, even though I myself haven't, but you have probably read them already. I don't think I have to metion the Hobbit and the Silmarillion. If you have read all those already I really don't know what to recommend. My brother recommended that I read the book, Out of the Silent Planet and the Series by C. S. Lewis, but I am lack of sufficient time.
