Should i read the hobbit or the lord of the rings part 1 first?
the hobbit first it is so much better
Hobbit since it is the prelude to The Fellowship of the Ring.
It does not matter. Books were written separately, not as series.
The Hobbit starts before LOTR, so I'd say The Hobbit.
The Hobbit then when you read the other three books they will make since. You will understand what they are doing in the later books and why the need to destroy the ring. And how bilbo got the ring to begin with.
Hobbit. It's setting is before LotR.
