POLL: What I'm going to read on my summer vacation

Reminder: Last day to vote!

I always like to plan my summer reading well in advance, to have my beach books ready to go when the summer blogging break hits. This year I thought I'd have a little fun with it and give you, my readers out there in the biblioblogosphere, a chance to determine my summer reading. I've chosen 10 books that are on my long list and you can vote for them. I'll take the top 3 or 4 (depending on page counts) away with me on vacation, starting July 15th. The voting will end on July 14th. I'll be reporting on my reading experiences on the other blog.

What novel should I read during my summer vacation?
Clear and Present Danger by Tom Clancy
Darkness that Comes Before by R. Scott Bakker
Homeward Bound by Harry Turtledove
My Soul to Keep by Tananarive Due
Old Man's War by John Scalzi
Passage by Connie Willis
River of Gods by Ian McDonald
Romanitas by Sophia McDougall
Talisman by Stephen King and Peter Straub
Throne of Jade by Naomi Novik
Free polls from Pollhost.com

Some additional information on the long list books:
Update #1: Blogpoll.com was too flakey so I've switched to Pollhost.com.
Update #2: Changed pub date to July 9, to serve as reminder, will remind again on July 14th.

What? You've never read any of these? Granted, I've never heard of a couple of them, but...well, never mind.
