The Great Wednesday Compare #8- Anne Shirley VERSUS Marilla Cuthbert
The winner of last week's Great Wednesday Compare (Anne Shirley VERSUS Vito Corleone), with a final score of 10-0 was Anne Shirley.
Anne takes down the mafia kingpin! Who knew she had that in her? Also interesting that all my voters were female last week. It's not surprising in one sense; since I joined the bookblogging world it quickly became apparent that us male bookbloggers are in the minority by a long shot. But I so badly want to know what the results would have been had the ten votes been male last week. (For what it's worth, I probably would have gone with Anne as well. I've not even read Puzo's The Godfather, I didn't like the movie, and quite frankly I hate mafia stuff. Can't stand it.)
Anyway, this is the official end of the GWC8. With 5 wins under her belt, Anne has is the champion and we retire her...almost. As per tradition, Anne needs to now take on last edition's winner, and holy cow, it's Marilla. Is this even fair? I'm not sure, but let's find out!
