I'm having some trouble figuring out how to tie in the book covers.
When I was initially doing the load, I thought they mapped to pretty
straightforwardly to images.  It wasn't until I actually got the data
in there (and realized that the locations I expected didn't exist
majority of the covers) that I realized the problem.

The way to access the cover images is:{devkey}/medium/isbn/{isbn}

(or some variant of {devkey}) is a URI, I can't help but think that
people would be a little underwhelmed to find that in a foaf:Image
along with disclaimers, licenses and instructions of use.

Dunno, any advice?

As far as other sources, there's:
and or

The last two require an extra step (namely finding LCSH mapped to an
ISBN) -- but I'll see what I can do.
