      Phrases We Owe to Shakespeare Becky, a 20-year-old English Lit geek living in London, scribbled out this list in a Moleskine notebook at 3 am a couple nights ago. She posted it on her Tumblr page, and within 24 hours, more than 11,000 people had saved it in their favorites file. She was astonished. “I still don’t know how something I scribbled in a hurry at 3am got so many notes in the space of a day? Shakespeare is clearly too awesome,” Becky said in an update on the post today. “I spelt “bated” wrong, awk … Someone said this looks like a serial killer’s notebook, which made me laugh a lot. They’re not wrong, I’ve been a sleep deprived zombie lately.” She certainly is a girl on a mission. On her birthday on August 30th, she set a challenge for herself: Read a book every week until she turns 21. “Lately, I’ve gotten into the terrible habit of buying books but never reading them. Gradually I’ve been reading less and less,” she said. She put together a list of 52 books (heavy on Palahniuk, Murakami and Hemingway) and posted it here. “I thought it would be a good way to encourage others to read more too.” Want to take the challenge? The details are here. She’s also giving away the books she reads. Awesome.
