I'm so excited! My honey and I are going to this as a live show in May! Levar Burton was my first source for book recommendations and now I'm going to get to see him in person!

TobeyTheScavengerMonk I realized recently that when I read to my son I always say the author and illustrator‘s names after the title in the exact same cadence as they did on Reading Rainbow. (edited) 2y
Tamra Oh how fun! 2y
panoramix @TobeyTheScavengerMonk I know it's a typo, but the concept of reading to the sun kinda appeals ☺️ 2y

TobeyTheScavengerMonk @panoramix Ha! Thanks for the catch. Fixed it. The US time change got to me I guess. (edited) 2y

So tired. I have taken three naps today which is unheard of for me. I have been trying to read in between naps but my eyes are tired so I have also been catching up on this wonderful podcast. If you haven‘t checked it out yet you are missing out on the delightful LeVar Burton reading short stories to you.

hgrimes That sounds amazing. Definitely checking it out. Thanks! 2y
BillBlume I am a huge fan of this podcast. The wait between season one and season two was painful! 2y
ReadingSusan @BillBlume it‘s so good. I have been trying to stretch the episodes out. 2y

Leftcoastzen Sorry for your struggles , nothing worse for a reader not to be able to read . I need to try this podcast. 2y
Becker Love this podcast. He is an excellent storyteller. 2y
Phlamboyant I love, love, love this podcast. My daughter and I binged it on a road trip to Portland last summer. I'm saving the newer episodes for our next trip. 2y
ReadingSusan @Phlamboyant it would be perfect for a road trip! My husband and I always listen to Stuff You Missed in History Class on road trips. 2y
hgrimes @ReadingSusan Listened to the Gaiman episode on my commute to work this morning. Where has this been my whole life?! Soooo good! 2y
mabell @ReadingSusan Love ❤️ Stuff You Missed in History (though prefer the older episodes) - have you tried the new one, Ridiculous History? 2y
ReadingSusan @hgrimes yay! So glad you are loving it. It‘s one of my favorites. 2y

Finally checking out the Levar Burton Reads #podcast. Here goes nothing! 🙂

Booksnchill @monkeygirlsmama I love his podcast and, so far, all of his short story picks! 2y
Listener15 This is an amazing podcast! He chooses such great short stories. 2y
monkeygirlsmama I quite like this first one. His narrator voice is definitely almost up there with Morgan Freeman, so I'll be listening to more. 😊 2y

swishandflick How silly is that?! That's like SJP getting in trouble for saying "I couldn't help but wonder". Who cares? It's such a nondescript saying. (edited) 2y
RowReads1 🤔😒 2y
dariazeoli @swishandflick It's apparently part of a larger suit about infringement, but I have such fond memories of LeVar & RR that I'm going with my emotions here. He was that show for a lot of us. 2y

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @dariazeoli I'm with you and him! And he's using that phrase in the meaning with which it was intended and in ways that continue to support the original concept. It'd be different if he was using it in a way that would defame or harm the "brand" (edited) 2y
mcipher What??? This is insane! 2y
