Hi! You can absolutely add a book cover to Wikipedia!

The main thing that you will need to do is make sure that when you upload a file via the File Upload Wizard that you select "This is a copyrighted, non-free work, but I believe it is Fair Use.", that you specify the article it will be used in, and that you then select "This is the official cover art of a work."

This will show up once you select that it is fair use. It'll ask you who the author is - I usually put down the book's author and the publisher. Make sure that you put down where you took the item from. If you took a picture of a book yourself, write down that you took the picture. If it's a website, link to the website.
