Reading Rainbow hits stretch goal of $5 million, so it's coming to mobile

If you lived in America as a child anytime from the early 80s until about 10 years ago, there's a fair chance that you have experienced Reading Rainbow. The show, hosted by Lavar Burton, taught kids about the joy of reading. And, we here are pretty big fans of reading (what with being a bunch of writers who like having a literate audience). So, we're pretty happy that the Reading Rainbow Kickstarter has reached its stretch goal of $5 million...

Reading Rainbow came out the year I was born--1983. If you remember watching the first episode when it launched, that would make you 33 at the very least. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I highly doubt you're that old.

Actually, I am 33, and I'll be 34 in a couple of months. Thank you for doubting my old age, though... lol!

Ah classic show bring back so many memories. Kids now and days reads on tablet instead of a real book which is sad.
