25.3 - Sandy’s Task As Suggested by Katy: Daylight Savings
Choose two books from of the following options (books must be from two different categories):
A) Since we'll be "falling back" with our clocks, fall back in time and read a historical fiction novel or a nonfiction book about a historical time period before you were born.
B) Read a book that features time travel.
C) Since the days will be shorter, read a short book (100-300 pages). REQUIRED: If you choose option C, include in your post the number of pages in your book.
D) Since dark will come earlier, read a "dark" book - select a book that is over 100 pages from Most Depressing Book of All Time
OPTIONAL: If you choose option D, tell us whether you agree that the book is "The Most Depressing Book of all Time."

Dee (austhokie) | 7542 comments ohh, goodie...some place to put those short books i keep ending up with for other group challenges!

can we do two books from the same category? or does it have to be two different ones?

It doesn't look like it fits into this task unless it appears on the Most Depressing Books of All Time list.

Katy - I'll refine the task description to make that clear.

Nicki (luluminstrel) | 285 comments There's some weird choices on that Depressing list! Some emotionally moving ones but I'm not sure 'depressing' is the right word. Not that I'm complaining - loads of good options :)

Danielle (thewolvessaid) Does anyone remember if Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows has time travel?? I haven't read it since it came out and don't remember. For some reason I have in my mind that the time-turner makes a comeback in this book, but again...can't remember.

It was returned to McGonagall after the Prison of Azkaban. I don't recall it coming back, so I checked the Harry Potter Wiki, the entry on the Time-Turner has a list of appearances of the object that doesn't include the Deathly Hallows.

Danielle (thewolvessaid) Thanks, Vicky. I was trying to look it up too but couldn't find it. :)

Janet Berkman (jannie_b) I checked the general rules and couldn't see anything about graphic novels. I'd like to read Brownsville, a 200-page graphic novel set in the 1930s for category (A). Would that work?
