I would suggest putting a thin layer of batting (with spray adhesive) on top of the book and then wrapping the book.  It feels extra posh that way Wink

yep adding padding will make it feel schmick.

If you want to make like a slip cover just cut a peice of fabric about an inch taller than you book and with enough overlap on each end to fold in over the covers.
like this


then turn the flaps in on the wrong side of the fabric - sew and then turn inside out and slip over your book.
