My parents said I had to read the books before I was allowed to see the movies, so books first. But I'm glad I did it that way. :)

Well I read the Hobbit before I saw the films, but as the Hobbit is entirely different I voted "movies". I have yet to read ROTK. :-)

I voted 'Movies' because I read The Hobbit then watched FotR, and then read LotR.

Books first. I grew up with parents who were fans of the books and my older sister read them all pretty early. My mom would read "The Hobbit" to us as a bedtime story. I read LotR in my teens and then saw the movies when they came out in theater.

For me it was a bit of both in fact.. I have seen the Fellowship first, than I have read the whole trilogy, and after that I watched the Two Towers and the Return of the King.. so I can't say I did one before another :P

LUCKY! I saw the theatrical versions first and I was itching to see the EE! I've seen them, though.

Me too. I am quite glad I read them first, it makes them more worth while.

My friend insisted I read the books before I see the movies (this was after all 3 EEs were out) and I probably wouldv'e done that anyway. It's just what I do, usually - read the book(s) a movie is based on before seeing the movie, I mean.
