It really depends on how you tweak the settings.  You can optimize, you can try 
asking the software to check text quality when optimizing.  You can also try 
switching from static to grayscale and anything in between.  No matter, you can 
still find a cover which has no text and ones that won't scan.  
Good luck.

  I just tried to scan a hardcover book's cover and it came out awful. I 
usually type it in. This one was worse because it's a library book and that 
shiny protective cover they put on it makes it really tough to scan.

  Shane, what book do you want the cover from? Maybe one of us can get it and 
just type it up and email it to you?

  If you broke it, lost it, need it cheap or just can't find it anywhere else, 
find it at eBay!
