In your specific case, I would suggest modifying the pageturn script such that the left edge big button "presses" 2 next_page and the left edge small button "presses" 2 prev_pages, netting to a single press, since

the end of the script would then look as follows (sorry if my syntax is incorrect, scripts are not my forte)

Code:
#read which key was pressed
	case "$(cat /tmp/key)" in
	"193 1")
	next_page;;
	next_page;;
	"104 1") 
	prev_page;; 
	prev_page;;
	esac
	}
Admitedly,
1- the visual effect of flipping a page 3 times is not that appealing and
2- you would have to start the script only when reading a book and restore the buttons to their original function in other contexts, to preserve your sanity.

Short of having the ability to "swallow" the original key behaviour that is all I could thing about.
