Also missing Levar today too 😭
Loving my new shirt!! (Ordered from Teepublic... they have so many cool designs! And can get in shirt, mug, or sticker form)
I just wanted to share how much I love the Star Trek: TNG/Reading Rainbow crossover episode during TNG month. This link is bloopers from the season one episode Symbiosis, which is actually about drug addiction. 🤷🏻♀️
LeVar also showed how they made transporter beams (glitter in water) & some models from When the Bough Breaks in other parts of the RR episode.
Look for #StarTrekSummerJune prompts this weekend! 🖖🏻
My latest podcast obsession. It‘s also put several short story collections on my TBR
Had a pretty dismal February. Just not in the mood. Currently reading the Belles. I‘m enjoying it but also annoyed by it. But I think I finally hit the part that will keep my attention.
1. Two grey kitties ash and Goku yes my husband loves anime
2. Reading with a side of reading
3. Singing, listening to music
4. Colorado, New York and kansas (my bestie is there)
5. What would do if you won the lotto? Get a bigger home so I could build a library and a recording studio and get take out all day plus share with friends and family
Some of my earliest and fondest memories of reading are from this show. Now I can't sleep and have the theme song stuck in my head.
My niece was a huge Reading Rainbow fan. I was listening to a podcast and heard LeVar mention Skybrary so called to tell my niece about it. Guess who‘s ear got screamed in? 🤔 She‘s already created an account for her boys.

LAST ROUND of books today !All 127 kids I read with got 3 books each & box to a third grade for them to pick too.I found a way of explaining that they get to keep them forever, the books..I ask them if they know about adopting pets from the rescue or pound. Then I explain that I've rescued and fixed up these books so they can give them new homes . This works beautifully and they are so very excited to give the book a new home and take care of it!!
One of my little kinders 💗📖📚 this time of year my ESL kiddos start using more English 🙌🏻 it's so exciting
Holy Cow! How did I just discover this! He‘s amazing, but you don‘t have to take my word for it (I couldn‘t resist!). Anyone else listening?
So if this is on Goodreads I can count it as an #audioread, right? LeVar Burton can totally add to my read shelf!
We haven‘t had any rain, but we got a rainbow! My husband said “If you follow it to the end there‘s a Little Free Library.” 😂
Everyone always knows I‘m in for a readathon! #8intwo
Between packing and looking for a new apartment, and then just being dead tired, I haven't really read yet this weekend. But I have been catching up on some episodes of the LeVar Burton Reads podcast. (Loved "Unassigned Territory" by Stephanie Powell Watts.) As an old Reading Rainbow fan, I get a little choked up when he signs off with "I'll see you next time. But you don't have to take my word for it." ??
Ok Last post for now 😁😁. Thanks for the tag @Jess7 ! 😘
1. Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell
2. Harry Potter. Can you believe it?!
3. City of Saints and Madmen (Vandermeer)
4. Litsy and LibraryThing (ROOTs group)
5. Robert Jackson Bennett (author); Carlos Ruiz Zafon (author); Night Film; The Fold; Slade House; Bone Gap; Tearling series; Jonas Karlsson (author)
I will tag:
Just gonna leave this here... 🤓
It's possible that I'm late to the party on this one, but is anyone else listening to the LeVar Burton Reads podcast? His voice is so soothing that I don't even really care what kind of short story he's reading to me.
Exciting Update! 💕 you Litsy and Friends!
Lol. Between working this weekend and the nasty cold I got yesterday. This is all the reading I got done. Next time, I‘ll be sure to take some PTO and maybe get myself a nice hotel room with no distractions. #24in48 #readathon
2)Bookmark, usually. But if I don‘t have one I will use scrap paper. I will never bend pages! 😱
3)I can just stop.
4)Yes. Very often, I have a cup of tea while I read. I like popcorn as a reading snack.
5)Not unless my husband is watching something while I read.
6)One at a time. Or one on audio and one print.
10)I try to keep them looking nice.
12) @MaleficentBookDragon 🐲
My TBR shelf is looking thinner than I‘ve seen it in a while. I don‘t know whether to be proud that I‘ve been reading more and buying less or frustrated that I haven‘t read more.
My reading goal for the year is an average of two books a month including four that are more than 500 pages.
#goals #tbr #shelfie
Loving the tee I got for Christmas!
So I woke up to a ton of new followers and wanted to say Hiiiiiiiiiiiii! And welcome. This community is amazing and wonderful and glad you found it. I read basically everything but especially a lot of mystery because I write Book Riot's Unusual Suspects newsletter ( https://bookriot.com/newsletter/unusual-suspects/ ). And you'll see a bunch of pics of my goat who may look like a dog but I swear she's a goat trapped inside a dog 🐐Happy reading!
#15kforCal I like to read in the tub... sorry not sorry 🤷🏼♀️ it‘s pretty much the only place I get quiet!
1. I‘m upping my GR from 50 to 75
2. I‘d like to get around to reading Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald, First They Killed my Father, Slapstick.
3. Historical fiction. I think I‘ve read most genres, maybe Manga I haven‘t read that.
4. I am going to limit myself on swaps, probably only 2-3.
5. 100,000 but really I don‘t care I just love being a part of this community.
Happy with my #Goodreads reading challenge update! I usually set an attainable personal goal...and then enjoy crushing it! 👊🏼 Love seeing the amazing goals others are destroying here on #Litsy! #readersgonnaread #goals #justkeepreading
Love this... 💖💖💖
I think this is my new favorite podcast! I'm halfway through the available episodes and his story selection is excellent.
