How to Go About Finding Books I'd Enjoy? (Unhappy With Salesperson's Recommendations)

How did you find your favourite book? I occasionally get the urge to buy a book when walking by a bookstore, however, having only a vague idea of what I want to read, I usually go home with a recommendation from the salesperson that is so off-base that I ditch the book after reading the first few chapters.

Of course, this cycle gets progressively worse and it is now to the point where I go into the bookstore, glancing at titles and skimming back covers, wanting badly to find a book that will spark my interest only to eventually leave empty-handed and more even more discouraged.
