It’s the Ides of March, when Caesar was assassinated and when March Madness begins. If you want to do something else while your coworkers talk about a sport you don’t follow, read about Ides in general or about the religious observances around the Ides of March (which sound a lot like Easter).

And if you feel left out of the bracket games, play Out of Print’s Book Madness, which is slightly less fun for me this year because I haven’t read as much contemporary fiction, but is still a lot more fun than the basketball kind.
