CALL FOR BOOK CHAPTERS
What Chinese-language e-book reader apps are good? Where do you purchase your e-books? I'm looking for an e-reader app/marketplace/library that:
1. Has lots of simplified Chinese books
2. Has sensitive books unavailable on the Mainland market
3. Offers an in-app dictionary for faster use (no cut-and-paste to a second app)
This particular combination is proving difficult to find. I like Baidu Yuedu for #1 and #3. The Chinese book selections on Amazon and Google Play are weird/mostly for kids/mostly in traditional characters.

SmartHanzi and DDB Access, kindly mentioned by Charles Muller, are basically interactive tools. Following this discussion and in liaise with Marius Meinhof, a feature was added to the applications (Windows versions) to produce a file with spaces between words. It was confirmed that this segmented text file can be used with AntConc.
The next step was to make a more effective dedicated tool. "Chinese Bulk Parser" can process multiple files with one mouse click. One just has to drag and drop files into the application window.
