Confusion regarding choosing a book

Hare Krishna Everyone please accept my humble obeisances 🙏

My name is Vinayon Gurung and I have a question.

So I have finished reading Srimad Bhagavad Gita and now I want to read Srimad Bhagavatam.

But then I saw this book called "Prabhupada leelamrta" in my nearest Iskcon centre 

So my question is that Can I read Prabhupada leelamrta first and then Srimad Bhagavatam or first Bhagavatam and then Prabhupada leelamrta?

I hope you all will help me by answering this question.

Thank you 

Hare Krishna 🙏

    Hare Krsna Prabhuji,


    It doesnt matter whether you read Lilamtra first of Srimad Bhagawatam first. 

    Lilamtra is definitely easier to read, its about our times, life of pure devotee.

    Srimad Bhagwatam, on the other hand, is about Lord and His devotees. So there is no comparison. 

    Read both ideally.

    You have read Bhagavad-gita as it is, that is commendable.

    Now, pls don't delay and proceed to the first canto of the Srimad Bhagavatam.

    Srila Prabhupada Lilamrta is written by Satsvarupa das Gosvami, a disciple of Srila Prabhupada, you can read it after finishing the 12 Cantos of Srimad Bhagavatam in sequence. 

    Preferably read the Caitanya-caritamrta before Lilamrta.

    finish all the books of Prabhupada first, in my humble opinion, it has worked out very nicely for me.
