So for ten years I have been trying to read LOTR.

Going to accomplish that this summer, but I need some help
I hate the 2 book structure i get SO BORED JUST following Sam and Frodo for an entire book. What chapters should I read in order to intertwine the story the way the movies do?
Well, that's a little complicated. Books Three and Four do not really follow the same timeline. The movies introduced a fair amount of extra material not found in the books to extend Frodo and Sam's journey.

Really though, Sam and Frodo's major section is in second half of TTTs. Only the first three or four chapters of book six actually deal with them alone. If you would like though there is no reason one couldn't reader TTTs by alternating chapters, although chapter two of both books three and four tend to be the slowest reads.
