I've got a book review here somewhere, but I stumbled upon some observations that the blogger Ena Ramli shared in her blog about reading and buying habits of some readers.
In her discussion, she goes off a tangent from her review of Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy (I've read it, great book ;)) and gives us four points to ponder on how one chooses books off shelves while shopping for books, taking into consideration that the said individual has no knowledge of a book review blog like ours ;D to first stake it out. Among the four are:
1. Book cover design
2. Font size / design
4. The ending
Go ahead and click here to read more of her analysis :)
