As someone who has only just read the Hobbit for the first time [In reply to] Can't Post

I would definitely recommend reading it before you see the film.
It is much more fun to read and take part in discussion threads here about the upcoming movies if you at least have a bit of an idea of the characters and plot in The Hobbit.

As for the possibility of one potentially spoiling the other, I saw the author of Whale Rider, Witi Ihimaera on TV talking about adapting books into movie scripts. I liked the way he saw it, which is they are complementary to one another, each intertwined and part of the whole, but different by necessity. He wrote the script for the movie himself and commented that he used to be rather disparaging about writing for the screen, thinking it easy. He has changed his mind now!
