I found the Chronology easier to read in longer reading sessions and it was quite surprising just how busy Tolkien was. With so many commitments it is amazing that so much material was written regarding Midle-earth. It certainly challenges the notion that Tolkien procrastinated too much and should have produced more. It also made it easier than HoME to understand what Tolkien was working on and in what order.

As for the Readers Guide; I have so many notes of essays to read and books to check out and I found it was better to read it in smaller bites (3 or 4 entries at a time) especially before going to bed.

So many questions answered, but opening many, many more.
