I'm 9 and reading the series. I've read The Hobbit in 3 days. I just can't give Legolas up razz .

Love Legolas! ^_^
He was my favorite when I was younger, but as I've gotten older, I've really fallen for Aragorn. emotion_awesome

I read the LOTR books after seeing the first film in the cinema. I've also read The Silmarillion and The Hobbit.

I want to read The Hobbit again before the new film comes out, but I've lent my book to a friend and they haven't finished it yet. rolleyes

Hm... fairly sure I was in middle-school when I read The Hobbit, and it was at least a decade later when I finally got around to reading the trilogy... But I remember seeing the animated movie as a kid.

I’ve ready the Hobbit twice so far and I think i’ve only read the lord of the Rings trilogy once. I probably need to re-read the lord of the rings one more time, and the Silmarillion.

I thought they were quite interesting, Tolkien did a wonderful job creating the world of middle earth with the story and making characters who were likable and interesting.

It was a dozen years ago the first time I read the series. I started with The Hobbit, then read the Trilogy. I started The Silmarillion, but didn't like it enough to finish.

I'm similar to you with the books. I was 9 when the first movie came out, got ADDICTED so I went to the library to borrow Two Towers & couldn't, for the life of me understand it. So I waited when I was older to read them. I read The Hobbit, LOTR & then The Silmarillion.

All the LOTRs and The Hobbit were amazingly written. ALS Children of Hurin is one of my favorites. It's very dark.
