How can I make my book display bigger on the iBooks shelf?
For some reason, my book is displaying at a smaller size than most of the other books on my shelf. I notice that there are a variety of sizes. How can I control the size? I've tried messing with everything from the cover xhtml to the itunesmetada.

It's not about image dimensions, it's about image proportion. A "full size" cover in iBooks bookshelf have an aproximate proportion of 1/1.5 (width/height).
An example: following Apple guidelines, your cover image should have at least 1400 pixels along the shorter axis. So, for a cover to occupy the maximum space available in the bookshelf, the image should have, at least, 1400 x 2100 pixels (width x height).

Simply resizing the cover won't do. You will probably need to rescale the background and adjust the other elements into place.
