Background image disappears with CSS hover
I had the idea last night to try putting little book images next to my Amazon text links. For it to work with my already existing css hover effect, I put the tiny image in the background of the DIV. The problem is that when you move your mouse pointer over the book/text link area, the tiny image disappears because the background color of the hover replaces it until you move your mouse pointer away again.
Is there any way to keep that background image from disappearing during the hover? I searched using Google, but I can't find the answer. I'm probably using the wrong words in my search.
