Tiffany What that generally means is that this book is not technically part of the main series, and you won't miss anything by not reading it. It covers events that will be explained in the main series if they come up, but generally from a deeper and more interesting perspective. Alternately, these events won't come up in the series at all, and this is the only way to learn about them. The specific numbering means that this book would best fit if you read it after book 3, but before book 4. Although going back and reading other mini-stories (#0.6, #1.5, etc) probably wouldn't hurt you either.

I just wouldn't recommend reading a mini-story early (book #4.5 before book 4 in the main series) or starting with a mini-story like #0.5 instead of starting with book #1 proper. The first would likely give you a bunch of spoilers, and the second isn't the introduction the author intended, so you'll probably miss a lot if you try it.
