Information Commonly Given About Books

hReview prominently doesn't include a way to markup the author of a book. This makes sense for other kinds of reviews, but it seems glaringly deficient for books. This collection of information is intended as a starting point for a discussion about how hBookReview should differ. I'm expecting to find that most book review sites list the authors' names prominently. I'm googling around for book review blogs and other book review sites. Here are some from the first two pages of Googling.

reviews-formats has some discussion of formats for reviews, including book reviews. Some of the formats use creator as an equivalent for a work's author. Others use author, and sometimes they mean review-author, and other times work-author.

Information that will commonly appear in a book review includes: book title, book author, book editor, book translator, price, publisher, date of publication, number of pages, ISBN, review author, and review text.
