If you ask me what I prefer to read, without saying that one book is better than the other, i'd pick LotR anyday.

Hi Vadas! Haven't seen you around for a long time!

*whispers* Oh, and I'm gonna say it anyway. I think the Lord is better.    *runs out*

Ok, well if you're asking what we prefer, and we're talking movies, it's LotR no question, Tom Felton couldn't even save HP.

With the books, I don't have a favourite, it just depends what I feel like reading, and if I want to cry or not 

To Miriel, yeah... I've been pretty busy with uni lately, but I still like to check in here and see what the goss is

I prefer the Harry Potter books, definetly, but the films for HP weren't as good, although it was just as I imagined it to be.
However,  I like the LOTR films more than the books! JRR Tolkein was indeed a genious, but i got bored of reading them because I had seen the films so many times.

So HP gets my vote.

I resent that....

And I find it plenty interesting, and less tedious than LOTR. That's just my opinion, of course.

well if i have to choose i vote for LOTR but let's keep in mind that Harry Potter's story is still not finished. There are still 2 more volumes to go and we cannot compare it to another that it's already finished. 

oh, and HP is not about "12 year old annoying children"    just my opinion.

I like Harry Potter and LOTR the same I think. Well, here's the thing: I like the HP books more than the movies, and I like the LOTR movies more than the books. I dunno, that's just me.

lotr all the way, but the hp books were nice too, though they dont even belong on the same bookshelf with anything that Tolkien ever layed hands on ( no offence to HP lovers, this is, after all, only my opinion) HP are nice, but they ..... just .....arent ..... LOTR!!!

I honestly dont see how you can compare these two books. Just because they are written so differently.

There are similarities in the stories but as books they are written in way different time periods and stuff.

I think they are both GREAT in their own ways. I Honestly think i enjoy Harry Potter more sometimes, but this is because I am stupid and can understand it better than LotR.

I love LotR alot, but I ifound it difficult to read sometimes, and had to re-read the same sentence so many times to get it.

It makes me feel stupid but That's how it is.
