French translations for US market

Hi. I hope this is the right place for this question.

I just bought my first ereader, the Sony PRS-300. I would like to find books in languages other than English though. Specifically English bestsellers that have been translated into French(Dan Brown, Ludlam, Grissom, etc.). Does anyone have a suggestion where to look that is usable from the US market?

Hello, and welcome! Congratulations on your new Reader.

For French books, you can try the classic fnac.com or Numilog. Project Gutemberg has a number of them, and the same goes for ManyBooks and I believe also FeedBooks.

For more, there's this link in the French section of this forum.

This site seems to be distributing copyrighted translations illegally. Maybe you were referring to www.ebooksgratuits.com, an entirely different site that legally offers public domain ebooks (like project gutenberg).
