I just wanted to make a topic about J. R. R. Tolkien. I have "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" and they're really good. Anybody here ever read his books?

Yes, I've read some. Hobbit and LOTR are "must read" books and I enjoyed them both very much. Just it is good idea to read Hobbit first, then LOTR, not vice versa. While first one is more for children, LOTR serie is for bigger readers.
I've read also another books like Silmarilion (which explain many things about history of Middle Earth) and some short stories.
also, when reading Tolkien, it is good to have his Bestiary at hand, you know who is who :)

I have access to The Hobbit (read maybe a half of it), Lord of The Rings trilogy, Silmarilion and Children of Hurin, in Polish. I also have The Hobbit in Russian; I want to try and start reading it soon, it's a similar language to Polish, so maybe I'll be able to learn some of it just by immersion... And today I bought the Lord of the Rings trilogy in Chinese, maybe I'll be able to read it around February...

I've read LotR, Hobbit, Silmarillion, short stories, Tolkien's poetry and enjoyed them. :)

I read The Hobbit first, then LOTR, back in my younger days, but I've not read his other books.

Hopes no one notices that I posted sacrilegious unfinished fan art photo chop in the gallery.

I have read (in this order) The Hobbit, LOTR trilogy, The Silmarilion. I enjoyed them all. But I threw them out at a point earlier in my life when I believed I had to rid my life of all fantasy. I have slowly re-acquired all of them, and am looking for a week off to read them again. I also have one or two of Tolkien's other works, and they, too are looking for time to be read.

Yawey ngahu!

I read Fellowship and really liked it.

I also read a comic book version of the Hobbit, which probably made the whole easier to digest. Tolkien's descriptions go on and on.  :P

Skip the first chapter, I cant remember how many pages, start at the party, when you're finished, go back and read the first chapter if you wish. It might have made a better appendix than first chapter. Imho.

Well.. "Mellon" is both 'friend' and 'hello'.
