RIP Reading Rainbow

Books have been such a part of growing up for me, and Reading Rainbow was one of the shows that grew my love for books and reading. Maybe because we didn't have cable growing up, and PBS was gratis, and educational, I didn't think much of it until I found out that the show will air it's last show ever today! They halted production in 2006, but if I had kids, I would have loved to make them watch treat them to this show. It's a completely different generation, so it should not surprise me, but since I came from the generation of reading actual books (not PDF's), Britannica (not Google), and Mario Bros. (not Mario Galaxy) it's a sad day from my childhood.
