    I'd like an app that could be EASILY used to read aloud ebook/text files off of the SD card, emails, websites, etc.

    It should be able to select specific blocks of text or all text.

    Well, are you assuming that the ebooks would all be in English? If that is the case, then I think it would be possible to do some app like this

    There are several apps in the market that will read you texts and emails. I use drivesafe.ly it was designed to do it while you drive, doesnt mean you have to be driving. it has a companion app that reads the name of the person calling you when they are in your contacts. (I'd like to see that include caller ID).

    There are I believe, apps for handhelds that will read e-books as well. I don't readily have an example, but I'm sure I've seen them while perusing the apps stores.

    Well, I'd want English books, preferably read with the voice chosen in the text-to-speech settings.

    I've seen apps that read sms, but not ones that will large text files like ebooks and I especially want the option for ebooks.

    Did you ever have any luck finding a text to speach app for ebooks - I would have thought it should be a basic accessibility function! (I am using Galaxy S2)

    And another year later ... I'm looking for the same thing. I want something to read an ebook out loud over my bluetooth headset while I'm working out.

    Well, there might be. PDF to Speech is the closest I've found, but it definitely isn't perfect.

    PDF to Speech Pro ($3.50) seems to do all the stuff you're asking. Have you tried it out? If you have, what is it missing?
