bookish: Speaking of Shakespeare.

We speak Shakespeare a thousand times a day and don't even know it.




book·ish/ˈbo͝okiSH/Adjective




1. (of a person or way of life) Devoted to reading and studying rather than worldly interests.
2. (of language or writing) Literary in style or allusion.
3. (of art and all manner of lovely things) devoted to the written word as a form of art and as a way of seeing the world.
4. (of SheWritesandRights.blogspot.com) anything of the aforementioned characteristics as they are found on the interwebs and reposted by Bethany, because bookish and writerly things always give reason for amusement.*


P.S. Remember these beauties?

some of my very favorite phrases! "the world is my oyster" and "faint hearted" and "heart on my sleeve" and "baited breath".

This reminds me that the (sometimes boring) old guy is so relevant!

I do love me some Shakespeare, although yes, he is sometimes boring. Have you seen 'Shakespeare in Love'? Totally fictional but a great movie nevertheless. I loved how they incorporated different phrases like these into the script.
