LeVar Burton: Comic Books Started My Love of Reading

As a kid, I used to love watching “Reading Rainbow.”  Though the show no longer airs on PBS since 2009, it does live on.

In 2012, the production team created an iPod and Kindle app which airs new episodes and relates new books for kids. It also shows “video field trips” and is the #1 educational or Kids app on both machines.

Saturday is the annual “Free Comic Book Day,” where shops across the nation will offer up to 60 free titles to anyone who enters their stores.  Marvel is giving out a book tied to their upcoming “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie while DC Comics has one tied to a company-wide crossover slated for this fall.

Burton takes a bit of his day to not only promote “Free Comic Book Day,” but gives a little insight into what got him reading in the first place and how comic books kept this army brat in touch with U.S. culture while his dad served in Germany.
