Default looking for a text to voice ebook reader

I spend a good part of my day driving and I was hoping to find an app that can read my ebook / kindle books to me to help pass the time. Is there such an app?

Thanks in advance for any information you can offer up!

Mantano Reader. Open the book, tap the menu key, then scroll the options (its side to side scroll) to get the TTS function.

Thanks!

I just downloaded the app and gave it a quick try, not to bad.
Would be nice if they offered a voice package of different voices. But hey, good on them for including the option, it's a nice touch!

If you go to ivona.com you can play with the voices from a web browser. They even do several European languages and Aussie dialect!
Not all the voices are available for Android but I use Amy and that's really good.

I use Tap2Speak Reader to listen ebook when I am driving to work every day.
Since I have 'unlimited'(but with some limitations =_=) data plan, I am using google TTS engine.
