So, you want to do a 3D book with your cover, you're in luck, I did one this morning in Inkscape ( http://www.inkscape.org ) and you can get it here (SVG).
I also have pre-rendered PNG version here (PNG) but using the SVG lets you manipulate the colour, size/aspect etc etc.
Anyhow, once you have the 3D book template how you want, bring it into GIMP along with your book cover on separate layers and use the "Perspective" tool to stretch your cover over the front of the 3D book.
