I have a question for the readers and writers amongst my followers.
Do you think it would date my book to have two characters bond over a book that is kind of obviously going to be a best seller for a while?
A little explanation. I’m thinking of having a background character and his deceased best friend have bonded over the Harry Potter books, because one of them is named George and the other is Fred. Now I know people bond over names (me and my best friend bonded at first because we have the same name, save for one letter in the spelling), and people can bond over books. BUT would it date my book if this happened to be mentioned? I don’t know if it’ll be mentioned or not, since I think the guy will only show up once, maybe twice.
