Book Page Format

I've worked on many wikis, and they always have a format for the same group of page to make it look uniform.  Each page has the same sections, just with different information.  However, I haven't worked much on book wikis, so I don't know, and I think the community as a whole should decide what headings should be the format for book pages.  What do you think?

I have worked on both the Children's Book wiki and the Star Wars wiki and they both have a format like this. I think it would be good to have. Some sections I think would be good are, of course, the infobox, the plot summary, and the publisher's summary (from the back of the book). Some other sections might be a Cover Gallery or Alternate Covers section, an External links section, and perhaps an Editions section. (You can see an example of that on Chosen.) What do you think of these?

I plan on changing the style of the infobox to match the main page, but we will still have an infobox.  We should have a synopsis and a full summary of the book, although I'm not sure about the publisher's summary entirely.  The Gallery and editions sections are fine, and I'll add a sequel section to books who require one.  I'm going to try and think of some more sections besides these

What would the sequel section contain? And perhaps the publisher's summary should be called the synopsis as I've seen it called that other places.
