Default Text to speech ebook reader?

I know TTS isn't very "good" when it comes to reading ebooks out loud. However, I also have a Kindle and it's good enough.

Is there any way to feed ebooks through the TTS program?

Blio - "Blio will be offered free and is expected to be available from February." - BBC News - Blio bets against e-reader devices

TTS on Android also just got better. Loquendo Text To Speech is now available for Android. I hope one of the ebook readers implements it.

Loquendo TTS and ASR seamlessly integrate with the Android platform, offering Java-level interfaces to developers. Loquendo TTS has also been integrated into the Text-To-Speech Extended framework: this interface, once installed, makes Loquendo speech available to any Android app, allowing Android phone users to immediately upgrade to high quality TTS. The TTS interface is very simple at the API level, and all functionalities are controlled through Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML) tags. By offering a fully-fledged SSML implementation, Loquendo gives application developers full control over its TTS features.
