Hi all, I'd like to ask a question.
I began to learn French and started to read books in French some time back. I'm doing it by cross-referencing three available versions to me - in French (original works) and in English and Korean translations.
The thing is French books are quite hard to get here and even when they are available they're just so expensive. I'm reading them mostly in libraries but there are some books I need to get a copy for myself, such as Oeuvres de Lévi-Strauss (Édition Gallimard - this book is so compact and contains six major works along with good references). The only way I know at the moment is to order at amazon.fr and I hoped to know if there were alternatives. My preference is given to bookshops run by book lovers, allowing international payment and shipping.
For those living in London, the map of the independent/specialist bookstores is available - I got one from Skoob Books at Brunswick square (http://www.skoob.com), and of course, one should try Charing Cross Road. In Bloomsbury, Judd's is another great place to visit, which is just a few minutes' walk from Skoob books. (http://www.juddbooks.com)
Any recommendations in case of France? :)
