The Great Wednesday Compare #5- George Eliot Versus Robertson Davies

The final winner of last week's Great Wednesday Compare (George Eliot Vs Guy Vanderhaeghe), with a final score of 5-1, was George Eliot!

His Last Crossing may have won Canada Reads a few years back, Wanda may have been spotted reading it on a episode of Corner Gas, but Guy Vanderhaeghe was no match for George Eliot. Oh Saskatchewan, when will you finally have your moment of glory?

For now, however, let's celebrate George Eliot's historic Great Wednesday Compare win. With Vanderhaeghe's departure, Eliot has won 5 weeks in a row. She is the final winner of the Great Wednesday Compare #5. But, in a GWC tradition, she must now take on the all time champion: Robertson Davies. Davies, the winner of the 2nd GWC, has since defeated the 1st GWC Champion, John Steinbeck, and the 3rd GWC Champion, A.A. Milne (the fourth GWC was a book against book format, so Davies didn't compete). Will Davies remain undefeated?

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. (June 8, 2010), and if you want your book to get more votes, feel free to promote them here or on your blog!

Who is better?

Robertson Davies all the way! He is my all-time favourite author - I don't think that you will be able to find anyone that would beat him in my opinion!

Sorry George (Mary) but I have to leave you now. Robertson Davies is still my favourite.
