I came across this site from 2003 where the BBC Radio 2 sponsored a contest to pick the UK's 200 best loved novels.  Lots of familiar names on the Top 21 and I wonder if this contest was the origin of the “Canada Reads”-type events that have proliferated where one community/region/nation chooses a single book for everyone to read?  (I could probably Google that but I'm too lazy.)
