You are processing cover to find low quality covers. That would be a very processor intensive thing I think you would be better of just calculating the dimensions of covers 80-90% of the covers with white borders would be squarish instead of rectangular that should eliminate a large portion of bad covers.
Most bookstore recommend cover ratio to be 1:1.33 or 1:1.5 any cover not matching these ratios would likely contain white spaces or re-sized incorrectly

Low quality covers can also be processed by getting a dpi, dimentions and file size baseline and comparing cover images to that baseline.
