I think at that point you are leaving the reservation - the newer supersized tablet "readers" are best for something like that with the 9" screens like the Ipad - but then you are at $300 and close to your Ipad mini.., galaxy , etc.
I think a good tablet plus one of the superlight backlit e-ink reader is the hot ticket. the size and weight and battery life difference is huge.
If she is not really much of a reader, then skip the e-reader and just get a tablet.
