NUMBERS

3,500 -- Initial print run of The Fellowship of the Ring. Publishers thought demand would not be great.

100,000 -- Number of paperback copies an American bootleg version of The Lord of the Rings sold in 1965 alone.

100 million -- As of 2001, estimated number of copies sold of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, making them the most popular fiction in the world.

40 -- Number of languages The Lord of the Rings has been translated into.

3 to 10 -- Factor by which book sales have increased with the hype from The Lord of the Rings film, despite fears from the Tolkien family.

$273 million -- Estimated budget of the three films of The Lord of the Rings. The Fellowship of the Ring opens Wednesday. The Two Towers comes out in December 2002. We'll have to wait till December 2003 to see how it all ends in The Return of the King.
