Reading Rainbow Redux: Ladies and Gentlemen, The Bible! By Jonathan Goldstein

Earlier today some people were discussing their love of the show Reading Rainbow in the Bitch comments section, and I was inspired to do my own Rainbow-style book review. Here are some of my thoughts on Jonathan Goldstein's most recent book, Ladies and Gentlemen, The Bible!

To hear Jonathan Goldstein himself read these excellent stories, visit This American Life or WireTap.

:( I can't hear it... turned

I can't hear it... turned up volume on player and my 'puter and it's still too quiet... I need to hear K-DUB!!!

mic, perhaps?

Yeah, that was as loud as I could get it to go on YouTube. Next time maybe I'll have to use a microphone!

What to foundationally biblically or any other way...sorry to say but about as impactful a book and review as Jim Jones was on faith, or the KKK is on what it means to be faithful..OMG they published a book...sigh

Jonesing for some vintage

Jonesing for some vintage Reading Rainbow clips, I just googled LeVar Burton and found his blog. It's actually kind of interesting and readable. He ends each entry with "I’ll see you next time… but you don’t have to take my word for it." It's like he found my letters and read each one out loud.


I really liked this and I plan to stay tuned for more. Thanx for the info!
