The genres are very, very similar and there is plenty of overlap. Plus it eliminates the bickering about whether or not the book is a mystery or thriller or crime or suspense or whatever, all are welcome to be nominated.

Mostly I nominated the two together in order to make room for other categories to be chosen for 2013. I like broad categories, let the nominations sort out the books people want.
Actually, I did vote for mystery/thriller before realizing it's an invalid category.

We had this discussion for science fiction and fantasy. It was said that they are two different genres with some overlap. That's how mystery and thriller are (different with some overlap).

So if mystery/thriller wins, then we'll only be able to nominate books that overlap because if you go for say a cozy mystery, then thriller will be left out completely.
