    I watched the movies about 20 times but the last time was two or three years ago. I read the books twice, the Hobbit I read once, when I was 10 or 11 (I got the book as a birthday present). The Silmarillion I read once, but this was four or five years ago and I forgot most of it. I first watched the movies (I was 14 or 15) and read the books afterwards.

    Watched:
    Animated Hobbit probably at least a dozen times
    Animated LotR maybe twice, it's been a while
    Animated RotK at least four times
    FotR maybe thirty to forty times (including extended version)
    TT maybe ten to fifteen times (including extended version)
    RotK maybe fifteen to twenty times (including extended version)

    Read:
    Hobbit about fifteen times, currently reading it in German to work on my German skills
    LotR three times (including appendices (it would be more but my friend has been borrowing it for a year or two now))
    Silmarillion once, probably will read it again soon
    Children of Hurin I think twice.
    Book of Unfinished Tales once (very interesting if anyone is curious. I picked it up mostly for the map of Numenor, but it goes into some ideas of who exactly the wizards are, and more of the history of Numenor.
    I've also read the Tales of Tom Bombadil once. It was a nice read.
    I've also attempted to read Book of Lost Tales a few times, but never get very far. I plan on reading it one day along with the other histories of Middle-Earth books.

    I've read all 5 books once a year, for every year since I was ten. I kind of like them. I was the movies probably twice a year
