Undatable in Lit Hashtag Sweeps Twitter

Yesterday the Random House Twitter feed took the popular “undatable” topic and collected examples of undatable literary characters at the new Undateable In Lit hashtag.

Here’s the tweet referencing a classic character from Charles DickensGreat Expectations: “Let’s give ‘undateable” a bookish twist. We’ll start: wearing a wedding dress every day since being left at the altar. #UndateableInLit.” The Huffington Post made a slideshow of some great examples.

Add your undatable character to the Undateable In Lit hashtag. We contributed Don Quixote–an undatable literary character who wears armor, wrecks windmills and spends too much time playing LARP games. Follow these links to read free eBook versions of Great Expectations or Don Quixote.
