The Great Wednesday Compare 3- Beverly Cleary VERSUS Stan Lee

The winner of the last week's Great Wednesday Compare (Beverly Cleary Vs. Amy Tan) with a final score of 6-3 was Beverly Cleary.

I'm sorry, I know some of you were hoping for a Amy Tan Vs. Pearl S. Buck showdown this week, but it's just not in the cards. I've had Tan's The Joy Luck Club and The Bonesetter's Daughter sitting on my bookshelf for some time now and, for you Tan fans, I promise I'll get to them soon. Of the two, which would you recommend more?

On the surface, this week's match-up looks pretty bizarre. But, when you consider it, both have played pretty significant roles in many childhoods.

Remember, vote simply by adding your comment below, base it on whatever merit you choose, voting does not end until Tuesday at 11:59 p.m. (Nov. 4th, 2008), and if you want your author to get more votes, feel free to promote them here or on your blog! You might notice that there are two weeks to cast your vote this time around instead of the usual one. That's because next week I'm going to bring you a very special Zombie Edition of the Great Wednesday Compare. Those of you who followed the late Kookiejar's blog might remember what that's all about from last Halloween. But for those of you that don't you'll just have to check in next week to find out.
Who's better?

I love the way the Marvel Universe intersects! Go Stan Lee! (Sorry, Mrs. Cleary, but I'd like to think that your creation, Otis Spofford, would vote the same way.)

I still vote for Beverly Cleary.

When I was in the third grade, our teacher used to read Beverly Cleary books to us. I still have vivid memories of those reading times, and credit them and Mrs. Lann for my love of books.

Definitely Beverly Cleary!

[By the way, I've got five of my thirteen Canadian reading-challenge books read and reviewed. All L.M. Montgomery.]

My Spidey senses are most definitely tingling. Stan Lee for me.

Of the two Amy Tan books I suggest The Joy Luck Club over the other.

My vote this week goes to Stan Lee. Superheroes are better than ordinary kids anyday! LOL

Cleary again for me.

Stan Lee! He had a cameo in Iron Man and that's enough for me.

Gotta give it up for Stan Lee. The man is the Master!
