Also here is their list of 100 best novels since 1923. I haven't read many of these... could turn it into a 2013 reading challenge!
I would have placed The Pickwick Papers higher. It's hilarious. My number one would be David Copperfield. If I am guessing number one I would say Great Expectations or a Tale of Two Cities.

Martin Chuzzlewit
Our Mutual Friend
The Mystery of Edwin Drood
Barnaby Rudge

Just my opinion, but if it was up to me The Old Curiosity Shop shop would replace Barnaby Rudge on that list. Cloying tearjerker.
