Such a cool date. We'll never see it again with month, day, year, hour and minute lined up that way! Well, at least for a hundred years. There's a little math geek in me that is very happy right now.
Quirky: Finding something just strange enough to be interesting, but not so far out there to be off-putting.
Quirky characteristics make books memorable, pull us into the story, and make the characters more relatable--iconic. Here are a few quirky characters that come to mind:
Harry Potter--lightning bolt scar
Jace in The Mortal Instruments--so, so, soooooo conceited but we love him for it
Becky Bloomwood in Shopaholic--she can't help it--she shops, and spends, and buys some more
Mrs. Bennet in Pride & Prejudice--perpetually immature
Quirky details pull us into stories.
