Reading is fundamental! As part of a partnership with the Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library, kids (or, say, you) can dial up the Call-A-Pacer hotline at (317) 275-4444 to hear your favorite 8-seeds read from their favorite children's books. This week: Tyler Hansbrough reading "Chicken Little." Seriously.

But that's not all. There's a new one every week. We've collected some of our favorites, from Roy Hibbert mumbling his way through "I Know An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly" to Jeff Foster getting into his sound effects on "Don't Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus" to Mike Dunleavy's confirmation that "T Is For Terrible."

It's a nice little program, and if it gets kids interested in their local library, it's nothing but a good thing. But we can't help but feel like we stumbled onto a treasure trove here.
