    If the book mostly consists in text (I mean by that few titles and subtitles, few footnotes, etc. so novels or even some textbooks), and you want to give it a "knowledgeable," crisp look, consider one of the following egyptians:
    • Parkinson Electra: http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/linotype/parkinson-electra/
    • New Caledonia: http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/adobe/new-caledonia/

    Although they've been used, they haven't been overused (like Caslon or any Garamond-like). I found that the natural contrast between text and italic weights is really interesting in this kind of context.

    Quadraat by Ourtype, or Renard.
    I really like the feel and greyness of the layout.
    Enjoy :)

    Allow me to give another suggestion:
    Mário Feliciano is the best if you're looking for news design suitable fonts.
