It is rather difficult to find the latest French novels in French in the US. There are almost none on Amazon.com, and shipping costs from Amazon.fr are very high. So, think Canada...

Amazon.ca has over 800.000 books in French… the DVDs are the same zone as in the US (they will work on a US DVD player when DVDs from France won’t), and their shipping cost is much, much lower.

French Book section

DVD section

CD section – including audiobooks

Born and raised in Paris, I have been teaching today's French to adults for 20 years in the US and France. Based on my students' goals and needs, I've created unique downloadable French audiobooks focussing on French like it's spoken today, for all levels. Most of my audiobooks are recorded at several speeds to help you conquer the modern French language. Good luck with your studies and remember, repetition is the key!
