Best image size for cover?

Hi,

I'm wondering about the best image size to use for the cover of my book. I'm using Adobe Digital Editions to preview the book, and the cover I have now looks funky as a thumbnail in the ADE library - it only shows a section of the image, and it's not flush with the edges.

On the other hand, I've uploaded the book to the Kindle Direct platform, and it shows up too small on the previewer - at least for iPad and Kindle Fire.

Can anyone help?

Thanks!

(nb. I posted this same question initially in the Sigil forum but was told I should probably post it here.)
