The Great Wednesday Compare- Charles Dickens VERSUS Virginia Woolf

The winner of last week's Great Wednesday Compare (Charles Dickens Vs. Mark Twain), with a final score of 10-9, was Charles Dickens. This is thanks to a tie-breaking vote from yours truly. I can't say I feel strongly either way, but I did enjoy A Christmas Carol more than either Tom Sawyer or Huckleberry Finn (though those are great too). Plus Rush wrote one of the most annoying songs ever about Tom Sawyer, so blame them if you like.

I'm not spending a great deal trying to connect the next contender to Christmas, but hey there was that old newspaper headline that read "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus" that really had nothing to with her. Excuse me. Too much eggnog.

Who's better?

I'm casting my vote for Dickens only because he was a guest star on the Dr. Who episode I watched last night.

I haven't read Woolf, but I read The Hours.
I just read The Cricket on the Hearth.
Vote for Dickens, please sir.
