Bringing Back Reading Rainbow

by JR posted May 30 2014 3:29PM

I'm a big reader. I love all different kinds of books, and while I haven't made it to '50 Shades Of Grey' I will read just about anything else, including cereal boxes.Seriously, I read so much growing up, that I failed Junior English because I was in the back of the class reading the books to come for Senior year.  Lavar Burton's Reading Rainbow was a show I loved watching. The show made me feel good about my big imagination, and I didn't feel like such a nerd about reading so much. 

Well Lavar Burton is bringing it back via a Kickstarter Campaign. When you think about all the kids who aren't reading, to me this could be a really important television program for years to come. It's sad that it has to be funded through Kickstarter instead of a network just picking it up, but hey, at least someone is doing something. It shows that people know it's important. Because on day one, they already flew past the $1,000,000 goal.
