For the tributes among us who are desperate for more Hunger Games, the folks at Scholastic have been like generous sponsors, dropping book after book on us like silk-parachuted gifts. The Hunger Games Collector’s Edition of Suzanne Collins’ mega-hit is already available for the holidays, and three other titles will be released simultaneously on Feb. 7: The Hunger Games: Official Illustrated Movie Companion, The Hunger Games: Movie Tie-in Edition, and the one I’m anticipating most, The Hunger Games Tribute Guide. Scroll down to see the covers for each of these three new titles for the first time:

++ Denise Richards says her upcoming memoir, due for release on July 27, will be more of an “inspirational” story than a tell-all about her marriage to Charlie Sheen. She calls her marriage to Sheen a “beautiful love story” before the “rotten stuff” took over.
++ Scholastic announced today that a special gift edition of The Hunger Games will be released in time for this holiday season. The Hunger Games Collector’s Edition, available November 2011, will feature a special slipcase featuring new mockingjay artwork. In February 2012, Scholastic will publish three titles — The Hunger Games: Movie Tie-In Edition, The Hunger Games: Official Illustrated Movie Companion, and The World of the Hunger Games — in anticipation of the March 2012 film release.
Tired of waiting for news on The Hunger Games movie? Anxious for a glimpse of Katniss in costume? Some people might tell you that patience is a virtue, but luckily the fans and aspiring actors behind this homemade, and surprisingly well done, mini-adaptation don’t believe that. Take a look below, but be forewarned: It’s the scene between Katniss and Rue and, even out of context, it packs an emotional wallop right to the most wallop-vulnerable part of your heart.
Sure, the actress playing Rue is fair-skinned and blond, but, other than that, I thought it was pretty impressive. What do you guys think?
