While working on a project to track books, I wanted to find a quick way to get book covers. OpenLibrary.org – a project to aimed at creating a complete digital library – has a nice covers API that allows for this. They have an easy system where covers are always available via a predictable URL and no API authentication is required.
You can add it to your browser's bookmarks and it takes an ISBN and returns the URL for cover image and copies it to the clipboard for ease of use.
