Buying French books, DVDs etc… in the US

Camille Chevalier-Karfis By Camille Chevalier-Karfis - updated on Jun 17, 2020

It is rather difficult to find the latest French novels in French in the US. Amazon.com has a limited selections of French novels and movies, and shipping costs from Amazon.fr to the US 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.

Here are the links to the:

  1. French Book section
  2. DVD section Note that the Canadian voices are sometimes different than the French voices: the movie Ratatouille for example was dubbed for the Canadian market and for the French market with different voices. The Canadian French subtitles can also be different from French from France subtitles.
  3. CD section – including audiobooks

Having said that, it’s always worth checking Amazon.com since their selection is constantly changing…

It’s not just slang. The French everybody speaks in France today is NOT the overly enunciated, extremely formal French usually taught to foreigners.
