I'm also a fan of eloquence as a book reader tts voice, and find it 
preferable in cases where there are difficult names to pronounce. I convert 
all my books to .txt files and read them either on a laptop (jaws) or my 
nokia n86 (talks). For reading on the n86 i use notepad lite which allows me 
to perform limited text editing to find sections  I'm looking for. I've been 
using this arrangement for years and am conscious that I'll need to replace 
the n86 before too long and am on the lookout for new solutions. I'll follow 
this thread with interest.
