Yep, me too, only use cover for putting it away.
But I don't think reading without the cover defeats the magnet functionality. When you're reading, you want it on... So you don't need the magnet. You can just put the device in the cover and close the cover without sliding the slider... Yes, of course, there's more steps involved than just closing the cover... but then, just closing the covers isn't much less work than briefly sliding the slider over and then closing the cover. So I'm not really bothered about the magnets either way.
