Of course, that's not what I was thinking when I drew that up.
Well then, hm, for them, doesn't "Mystery March" just have a nice ring to it?

I think a 6-month hiatus between nominations is eminently reasonable.

The rejiggered schedule is appealing. I like having the mystery in summer (in the northern hemisphere).

All in favour...

We can address the actual genres in June for the 2013 year. I'm warning everyone now that I'll be lobbying for an all-apocalyptic year to celebrate surviving the Mayan prophecies. Well, if we do survive.

I re-read most of the thread and it's an entertaining read watching the genres change as the discussion went on.

It was not until I reached April that I realized that you were joking.


I like the schedule HomeInMyShoes has come up with. Nice of him to prepare this interesting analysis as well: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...92#post1759092

I might even ask the question again net year unless this becomes the official list, in which case the year should be removed and the list be titled as such. Then there will be no confusion and no one will ask if any changes will be made.
I was also not replying as much to your post as to one that followed it.

Love it!

Although Storm Front would probably make it to the vote in about half of those months too.

I'm going to jigger the months a little more:
Code:
Jan  RunnerUp
Feb  Romance
Mar  Thriller/Suspense
Apr  Humour
May  Fantasy
Jun  Classic
Jul  Mystery/Crime
Aug  FreeForAll
Sep  NonFiction
Oct  Horror
Nov  Science Fiction
Dec  Classic
It was an effort to try to split up the following groups:
- Science Fiction, Fantasy
- Classic, Classic
- Mystery/Crime, Thriller/Suspense, Horror

I really messed them around. Since summer is supposed to be about fun reading I put Mystery, and FreeForAll in it so we can get some good summer reads. I also put NonFiction into September for back to school time. I would have liked to space Humour and Romance better, but the months they are in just make too much sense.
I agree that looks like the way to go for 2012.

So will you be starting a brand new Administration Thread for 2012 since the line up will be changing?

I think it would be nice to have a fresh start with the new line up, and include any other decisions we make/made in 2011.
