    To begin setting up Siri to read your books aloud to you, go to Settings > General, then scroll down to Accessibility. Tap Speak Selection, slow down the speaking rate a bit to make Siri's reading somewhat more natural sounding, and then turn on Highlight Words so that you can see where Siri is reading in the iBook. There. It's that simple.

    Thanks to Macworld UK's Mark Hattersley.

    Been using that technique since I bought my 4S to have Siri read websites, long emails, and the like. Works great.

    How do you actually get Siri to do it? Just open the book or email?

    Open whatever it is you want Siri to read, select all, and tap 'Speak.' It's extremely simple once 'Speak Selection' is activated.
