Need a good Chinese to English dictionary for Duokan

Hi all, I am a high school senior student whose first language is English and I am trying to improve my Chinese by reading Chinese novels. I have installed the latest version of Duokan on my Kindle 3 and I am looking for a good Chinese to English dictionary to use, that has:

1. Translations
2. Pinyin
3. Ideally, it should display on the screen when I highlight text, just like stock Kindle, instead of having to go to the dictionary screen.

I am currently using the langdao dictionary (朗道汉英字典5.0), which is pretty good for translations but is missing the other 2 features. If anyone knows of such a dictionary, help would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance

Randomly if anyone has some good novels to recommend that wouldn't hurt either. Currently I am reading the Chinese version of the Harry Potter books, and to get a rough idea of my Chinese level, I am taking IB Chinese A2 HL, for those of you who are familiar with the IB system.
