I can get covers elsewhere, but prefer the smaller covers that I normally get from Goodreads. For now I will take the extra steps to get them from there manually.
I also just did the latest Calibre update today, so I knew it was not an issue from Calibre.

Don't worry: Use the resize cover plugin as a quick fix for big covers

I installed it. It was easy following the Plugin instructions. I changed to my preference of 300 X 475. I selected a few books to resize to see how it worked. It did what it was supposed to. Then I gradually resized my whole collection. It is perfect.
Thank you

Remember, the cover is only that size in Calibre until you do something to update the book, Like Modify EPUB, Polish or a conversion

I just checked after resizing and then converting from epub to Mobi. The cover in the file stayed the same size. Hopefully this will be the same for all of my conversions.

Or as the OP found out (for mobi or ePub) the cover is updated during a conversion. Additionally the cover is updated upon export from calibre's library, like Send to device or Save to disk.

It seems as though they are changing their site at a faster clip than before.
