Nice hack. Is there any chance of the raised magnet coming into contact with the screen or stressing the glass substrate of the e-ink screen if the cover is impacted or squeezed? I ask since I'm assuming they bury the magnet flush inside the covers designed for this?
If so, perhaps a "dam" made of layers of felt that surround the magnet with a final layer covering the magnet might help distribute any force over a larger area. A little gel type super glue and you're set. Should add very little to your cost -I bought an about 8.5 x11" sheet of black felt for less than a quarter in WalMart a month or so ago so I could cover the metal bracket on a reading light so it wouldn't scratch my reader's bezel.
