Of course you are welcome to read the posts in any order. You could read them in the order they were written; starting with Bilbo’s An Unexpected Party from There and Back Again, and then move on to his Translations from the Elvish, and finally to The Downfall of the Lord of the Rings and the Return of the King. However, my recommendation would be to start with the oldest subject matter and work your way to the most recent, especially if you already know how the story ends.

You can read about the background of the blog, and about the authors here.
