Read me anything and everything

I have been a fan of Levar Burton since Reading Rainbow, and every episode of Next Generation, but my favorite thing he’s done is this amazing podcast. I love listening to Levar’s smooth and calming voice as he narrates carefully selected short stories. If you feel like you have “no time to read” this podcast is for you. I listen while I’m driving to work, cleaning the house, making dinner, on the plane to visit family, and even sometimes in bed when I cannot fall asleep. Thank you Levar for opening my eyes to authors and their characters I would have never known without you.
