You might also want to consider her tastes and investigate whether the kind of books she likes are published electronically -- I see quite a lot of children's books as ebooks but I think not as many as books marketed to adults.
(Unless of course she is going to read only public domain classics and fan fiction in which case she may be able to download them herself).
I already thought of that previously:
She already has a huge(I saw it - 3.4 GB... amazing! Even I dont have) collection of story books in one folder; some collected from her friends and some downloaded by herself. (She is quit smart in googling, and I was amazed how she downloaded Jody Kihara's White Witch Pond in two minutes in front of me.)
Secondly, I have PDF copies of her textbooks released free by governement.
Thirdly, I found some candy for her: (Whole list 50+ sites providing free ebooks for children)
