I loved the films and have re-watched them countless times, while the books have have been started and then abandoned more times than that, so for me it's films all the way.

I get that the books can feel a bit tedious, and more often than not, go unfinished for this reason. However, I enjoy the fact, that, through the books, you get to know the intense detail and history of Middle Earth, that is impossible for the films to communicate.

The films are so long and tedious already. I can't imagine how boring the books must be.

The books are just difficult to get through in one go. Each film is about 3 hours long, and they still leave out a lot of the detail, that is found in the books. I loved the films, and I think that they did a great job, there is just so much to Middle Earth, and it is sad that most people do not get to see it, in all of it's details and complexities.
