Why not just position the cursor on the previous or next page icon?
(Did you not have those in the movement target set?)

Like Dustin says, this could be confusing.  How about speeding up the
rate at which it accepts page change actions?  I'm not sure offhand
where the input delay comes from, but the fade effect itself is pretty
quick, so there's no graphical reason the flips can't go faster.
