Verbal email reader?

I have recently taken up walking... for exercise... not just walking... anyway, while walking, I use my phone as my MP3 player, which is great. However, I also hear the little email and text notifications dinging and I immediately want to pull my phone out of my pocket and check to see who/what sent me a message. I have my sounds set up, so I can know what I am getting a message from home/work/text... But, is there any app out there which might also be able to either read out loud either the sender's name or the subject of the message, so I can know if it's even worth pulling my phone out of my pocket? I don't really need the whole message - text maybe, but email, no - but at least a subject or sender should tell me enough.
