You'd lose resolution, however we wouldn't get the very dark images some covers render to on ebooks.

A halftone won't do what you want. EInk displays aren't high resolution B&W devices, they are medium resolution greyscale devices. I think you're looking for a high-contrast colour->(4-bit) greyscale conversion.
