    Depending on what flavor you're going for, FF Franziska has some really nice/modern feeling italics: http://www.fffranziska.com/

    Diaria Light Pro

    I have started to use Diaria Light Pro. It is friendly and airy. Also really nice on EPUBs.

    My current list of 'favourite' book fonts

    Yale & Lexicon look fantastic when printed on fine paper. Here are two samples that I typeset in LaTeX (first is Yale and then Lexicon)

    Life Roman is a great serif font that I've used in some publications.

    I think Bodoni is quite nice, although a bit old school. Caslon Pro always comes through in a pinch, and the italics version is quite nice.

    I should also add that Sabon is really nice - especially the small caps variants. Minion pro is also a workhorse.
