When you are at a store/library/etc that sells or has books, what makes you pick one up over another?

Author Recognition
Interesting Cover Art
Interesting Title
Recommendation?

What is the most intriguing aspect to you when you see a new book?

I was going to make that an option but you can't technically read the blurb without first picking up the book. :)

I agree though. I'll read that first but for me it's usually the title or the author. If it's by somebody I've read before I'm more inclined to pick it up.

The title is probably the highest on the list. Unless it's a kids book, then it's all about the cover art. Recommendations come next, but I don't have many of those that I go looking for.

Author recognition first , and then the summary. I'd also be interested in a book with big publicity just to check out what the hype is all about.
