Question Where can I get french ebooks (from germany)?

Hi,

I would love to read french ebooks on my ebook reader and I am capable of reading mobi or epub format (after conversions).

Can you recommend any ebook shops where I can get french ebooks? I have a german address with a german credit card. So I do not want to struggle with any local restrictions.

Thanks and best regards,

Jens

Thanks for the link, Bill. I already purchased a book from fnac. Although I have to say that french ebooks are VERY expensive compared to the US amazon kindle store ...

Yeap. Our idiots publishers still haven't realized they needed to index e-book prices on paperback if paperback is out.

Actually, French p-book prices are generally quite a bit higher than elsewhere, particularly the English speaking countries. Doesn't help that the publishing industry here is protected by that law prohibiting discounts of more than 5% on publisher established prices.

Yeah, that too.
But having the e-book prices 16 euros, when the paperback is available at about 7 euros...
