    I'm 30 and I've read it 3 times. I like it very much, but it's not my favorite Tolkien work :).

    Just turned 48 in July and I have lost count the amount of the times that I have read The Hobbit.
    The Hobbit is my favorite book and has been a mental lifesaver during my combat deployments while in the Army.
    Granted those have been awhile ago .. but re-reading The Hobbit did bring some joy in a otherwise ugly time...

    I do try to read The Hobbit each fall....A few years ago I read The Hobbit to my class.

    I've turned 21 three times, and i've read The Hobbit at least 20 times. My favorite is reading for children and grandchildren... I love doing the Gollum parts!

    I'm 19 and I will finally start reading the Hobbit soon.
    I'm reading the Silmarillion first to get to know more about the history of Tolkiens world.
    Reading is not really my favorite thing to do, but I am so curious to the books Tolkien wrote that I will do it anyway :D

    Twice. I didn’t quite enjoy it as much as The Lord of the Rings or The Silmarillion.
    Still a good enough read though.
    14 as of now.

    I first read, The Hobbit when I was 9. I am now 22 and have read it approximately 7-8 times. It is more to the LOTR trilogy and The Silmarillion I am drawn. I read LOTR prior to The Hobbit having now read both more than 25 times and find myself drawn to them once again despite my summer courses. So am re-reading them once more and suspect I will continue to do so for the remainder of my life.
