    Seriously?! That's about 3 times a year, I'm impressed! I'm 15, and I've read it about 3 times. The most recent being 2 weeks ago.

    I'm 16 and I have no idea how many times I've read it, maybe ten. I'm reading it again right now. Why do you ask, were you just bored?

    I started at 15 or 16, whenever the Hobbit cartoon came out.
    I'd say I read it about 25 times.

    I usually go in this order:
    THe Hobbit
    LOTR
    Silmarillion
    Appendixes
    Unfinished Tales

    This time, due to the movie, I went straight to LOTR.
    But I am reading the Hobbit to my younger daughter, age 7.

    And I thought I was bad!

    I've just turned 15 and I've read it at least 5 or 6 times, the last being 2 or 3 months ago. I only first read it when I was, um...9, maybe.

    Oh, and now I remember, I've listened to The Hobbit, read by Martin Shaw countless times.
     
  13. I'm 19 and i've read it only once, very recently. I found it to be excellent. Very, very clever book... More than just once, it tricked me into thinking something would happen when actually all the contrair takes place.

    It matters not how many times you read a book...but HOW you read it.

    I particulary liked the arrival of the dwarves at bilbo's house,
    bilbo's encounter with gollum,
    bilbo's brave attempt at rescuing the dwarves from the spiders,
    their escape from the elves,
    and bilbo's dialogue with smaug

    A friend told me he loves the book till the part Smaug leaves the mountain... because he was expecting the dwarves and bilbo to anihilate the dragon. I told him, PRECISELY...i think that's the clever part. That the dragon leaves them there and is killed somewhere else, thus turning more than just 1 army against them. It is a very unexpected twist...

    My mum read me The Hobbit twice when I was 7,8,9ish, and I've read it a few times since then.
    I've also listened to the radio adaptation about 5 times, most recently last year.
