«Growing up, my parents managed to show me the importance of reading without cramming it down my throat. A difficult task, I'm sure. It breaks my heart to think that there are kids out there, ready to have their imaginations lit on fire, excited and wanting to read, and facing naked shelves in their school or local libraries. Rather than complain or wait till the system stops failing our nation's children, this is a matter I feel we must take into our own hands. There are children, right now, waiting—wanting to read. What shall we tell them? I support Kids Need to Read, because it fosters a desire to learn, the process of self-improvement, and the chance for children’s minds to grow. What will you do?» - Nathan Fillion, co-founder of "Kids Need to Read" and star of ABC's "Castle"
