I posted this in the Classic Lit. section, but a lot of you here would probably be interested in this list.  This is from the Jane Austen Society of Australia.  They asked their members to list their top 10 favorite 19th Century novels and this list of 165 titles was the result.  Very interesting!

Thanks for posting this! I meant to add North & South by Elizabeth Gaskell to my wishlist a few days ago, but forgot. Seeing it on the list reminded me to add it. ;-)

I have a few of the Wilkie Collins books that are listed, but haven't read them. I think his books were sold as "Penny Dreadfuls" back then and I'm really curious to try one. I've read quite a lot of the other books on the list, but there are a few that I need to check out.
