"Adventure/Travel" edges out "Mystery/Crime" for the first "category upset" of the new year.

Excellent! Humour is a meh category, so we should move Fantasy up to April to clear the decks for Mystery for May™. [April] Fools and Fantasy work well together.

Someone needs to nominate some Pratchett and combine the two.

Wow, I'm happy and surprised that Adventure/Travel won! I was hoping that it would eventually win, probably in some later month, after a lot of popular categories had already won and weren't nominated anymore, but I honestly didn't expect it to win so early, so woohoo. I think it will be a fun month.

Mystery for May sounds great!

It'd be nice if Fantasy and Science Fiction were switched to Science Fiction earlier in the year and Fantasy later, though. I'm not a big fan of Horror next to Science Fiction and Science Fiction doesn't sound like a great idea for December, so an easy fix could be Science Fiction earlier in the year, Fantasy later on.

I think April would be good for a few different categories so it'll be fun to see what happens. This way of choosing categories one at a time month by month is fun to watch play out; thanks for doing it, Tom.

If Mystery diesn't make it in May, I will definitely nominate it for December.

Yes, March will be the Adventure/Travel month.

Lovely.

I think you guys know the rest of that phrase!

I guess it's on to April now. I'll open a thread shortly.
