I face a tough choice this week: Start filling out my NCAA tournament bracket or continue with the Hunger Games trilogy. I finished the first book in Suzanne Collins' series over the weekend, just in time to clear the slate for a week of college hoops. Mid-March is generally the time that my reading goes on hiatus -- back-to-back-to-back-to-back basketball games will do that. And this year there's a special reason to watch: To see if my home-state team, the University of Connecticut Huskies, can defend its national championship.

Suzanne Collins'"The Hunger Games" trilogy has sold millions of copies in the United States since the first book was published in 2008. Now, with the release of the blockbuster movie of the same name, the series has achieved even more: It has influenced kids to spend more time outside. Two weekends ago, 13 young "Hunger Games" fans braved the rain to learn about archery. The Saturday event, which was hosted by the Thurmont Regional Library and run by members of the Tuscarora Archers, allowed the teenagers to learn how to shoot a bow. "[It]

With the wide release of "The Hunger Games" movie in little more than a day, ticket sales are headed for a record, as fans across the country prepare for the biggest literary adaptation since the Harry Potter and Twilight films. And early ticket sales show that the movie is not just for teen-agers. The movie about post-apocalyptic North America is on track to become the biggest seller for the on-line ticket site Fandango, according to The Baltimore Sun's Jill Rosen.

With so many tickets sold in advance of the release of "The Hunger Games," reviews may be beside the point. With millions of readers already drawn into Suzanne Collins' trilogy about the post-apocalyptic world of Panem, the way has been paved for a successful release. Add to that a huge publicity storm -- I think the star, Jennifer Lawrence, has been on the cover of every magazine except "Muscle and Fitness" -- and you're looking at record ticket sales. Still, movie critics insist on weighing in. They have to earn their pay, after all, by dropping references to Tarantino and the score.

"The Cellist of Sarajevo" is the pick for the 2012 One Maryland One Book program , organizers have announced. Steven Galloway's novel is built around an actual event: a cellist's street performance to memorialize bombing deaths in the war-torn city. Galloway uses the impressions of three fictional characters to describe the siege of the city in the wake of Yugoslavia's disintegration.  His war is experienced on a human scale -- as Galloway examines the feelings of residents who live with the fear of random death every day. They try to maintain a grasp on their pre-war lives as they scramble for water and other necessities that are fast disappearing.

When the lights dim for "Hunger Games" at midnight Thursday, Fatimah Nelson, who bought tickets weeks ago, will be there, a bit breathless, at the edge of a plush seat at Arundel Mills. "I've been waiting months and months and months," says the Baltimore 21-year-old. "I'm really excited. " Nelson and millions of others in Maryland and around the country are braced for the opening of "Hunger Games," the latest young adult book series to become a runaway hit and then a movie and, it's looking like, a cultural phenomenon on the likes of "Harry Potter" and "Twilight.

If you have a spare $1.4 million -- are you listening Mega-Millions winners? -- you can buy the abandoned North Carolina village that portrayed Katniss Everdeen's hometown in "The Hunger Games" movie. Henry River Mill Village was built in the early 1900s as a planned community around a yarn factory, and after the mill closed, the 72-acre tract and its remaining buildings were bought by Wade Shepherd, according to an Associated Press story. He says fans have been swarming around the property to get a taste of District 12, and he's ready to sell.

Four-year-old Meg Bittinger can check one item off her wish list thanks to the Howard County Recreation and Parks Department: She is learning to use a bow and arrow like her idol, Princess Merida, the heroine of the 2012 Disney movie "Brave. " Amy Bittinger, who lives in Elkridge, said her daughter "is really into princesses, but I want her to have a diversity of interests. " Archery lessons would please both of them, she reasoned, and so she became the first to register her child for the February session of Lil' Archers, an introductory class for 4- and 5-year-olds that uses rubber-tipped arrows.

The seventh season of NBC's proclaimed "biggest talent show on earth" began with some pretty impressive but puzzling shots of Nick Cannon yelling atop a desert mesa, then watching a random man get shot out of a cannon. There's an opportunity for a pun, but we won't go there. Then cue the news and talk show clips announcing Howard Stern as the new judge, and some comments from fellow judges Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandell (Howard and Howie … this could get confusing) about how Stern is the best person to fill David Hasselhoff's empty judge's chair.
