End of the Year Book: Back Summary #1

Here is what I have for the back summary so far. Please read and comment, giving suggestions, comments, fixing errors, etc.

The hourglass has been in use as early as the 11th century, usually consisting of sand that transfers from one glass to another through a narrow tube. This simple device is used to measure amounts of time reliably and is still in use today, but are there secrets of the hourglass that have not yet been discovered? Could this common item transport beings from one dimension to another or bond with the spirit of a dragon? Is it possible that the hourglass could have hidden, mystical powers? Or perhaps the hourglass is just another of the many items strewn across a desk…

    I thought the same thing, but I don’t know what to add…I’ll work on it some more.

    I need some suggestions and feedback. What do you think it needs? Is what I have so far good or should I rewrite that, etc.?

    Hehe, I love the summary -sorry I couldn’t stop by sooner, I have been grounded from the computer =/- But the main problem I am finding with it is this sentence:

    ‘This simple device is used to measure amounts of time reliably and is still in use today, but are there secrets of the hourglass that have not yet been discovered?’

    It seems like it could be broken up to show and break the two sides of the point. Like say, This simple device is used to measure amounts of time reliably and is still in use today. Yet are there secrets of the hourglass that have not yet been discovered?

    *shrugs* It is small, but it is a change.

    My idea (or, rather, Liz’s :D) is a murder mystery, and in the process, a priceless hourglass is found shattered. Who was the culprit?
