This and the next three posts will allow you to vote on specific dates. These are week-long ReadaThings, but remember you don't need to read the entire time! Most are Thursday-Wednesday, except for the possibility of an RaT around July 4th (Holiday in US falling on Wednesday this year).

Update on June 21, 2012: Whoops! This should have been Thursday July 26 - Wednesday August 1, 2012 . . . but I didn't realize the error until voting was pretty much over . . . just noting it here to deal with any future confusion. Sorry about that!
There is a page on the 'Crime, Thriller and Mystery' Group, which is providing a lot of authors and books to this theme.
Translated Authors -- authors whose work was not originally written in your language(s)
New Genres -- works in genres that are out of your normal comfort zone
Christmas in July -- books set or related to winter
Good ideas! I'm due for some mystery reading . . . though most of mine are culinaries, there might be some that have vacation-relatedness as well.
And I know I have some translated works on my TBR list!
Living in Minnesota, Christmas in July isn't always so far off (we went from 90s to 50s in a few hours on Sunday) . . . but Snow by Orhan Pamuk is on my TBR list, so I could manage that theme (even if I don't want to think about winter right now) :)
or give ourselves more time and go for the second or last weeks?
(only the 19-27th seems problematic; but I'm one of the people who will be gone for part of that time :)
I'm guessing there may be other readathons and challenges folks could join around the 4th holiday . . .
And I'll be ready for either "Vacation Mysteries" or "Christmas in July" if we decide we want a theme . . .
I'll definitely go for the last July week.
If we take a theme than "Translated Authors" or "Vacation Mysteries" would be fine with me.
I'm in for whatever dates -- late July/early August is good.
I'm happy with "Vacation Mysteries", "New Genres" or "Christmas in July" for themes. I'm sure I could find something to fit pretty much any other theme, too!
