Sting A Much Awaited Day

Rejoice with me fellow Downers! I have finally, after a long and extended search, managed to get my hands on The Book of Lost Tales! Actually, it's Part II...but that's beside the point. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] I'm just happy to finally have one to read.

Now you may be wondering, what is the point I'm getting at... My question is for those of you that have read the BoLT: Should I wait and read Part I first, before indulging in Part II? I don't know if Part I would shed more light on some things in the second book or not. I don't want to miss out on any links from the two books, yet I don't want to wait to read them.

Your opinions are welcomed!

God Bless,
Laialthriel

No-You don't have to read BoLT 1 before 2.

I read Book 2 before Book 1 and found that it didn't make much difference. So go ahead and enjoy! [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]
