(Or additional places to find German ones.) Paying with a credit card and downloading the books could be really cost-effective for me compared with shipping from Europe to the U.S.!

FWIW, I'm looking for lightish recent fiction in genres like historical fiction, mystery, or fantasy. I'm sure it would be easy to find Faust or Mme. Bovary in the public domain but I can't take that kind of thing on the subway after a long day at work--that's what college was for!
If you try

www.manybooks.net

and click on "languages", you'll find many different ones listed.

True, these are all p.d., but well worth reading anyway! I'm sure you could find something that would appeal to you.....
