While you are at the store, also have her check out the built in iBook app. I know with iBook, you can change the font size just by stretching it with 2 fingers or with a control panel.

With all the book reading apps, have her check out the ability to change things like the contrast, brightness, font size and font type.
Those might make a difference in her ability to use the iPad for reading.

Another thing to check out is magnifying apps - there are quite a few in the apps store that use the camera on the iPad to magnify things. You can use them to magnify the size of text in magazines, actual books, pictures, etc.
some are free and some have a cost. Some have features like high contrast settings that might be useful to her.

You might also consider audiobooks. I myself don't use them (too busy listening to podcasts, DIS and others), but I have heard alot of people really enjoy and even prefer them.

Some library's use the overdrive system that has tons of free audiobooks to listen to. I love it for when I'm cleaning the house.
