Anybody know of a bookstore in or around Los Angeles that sells French books??

The title pretty much says it all.

I know that Barnes & Noble has a small section of foreign language books, but they're mostly Spanish books. A typical B&N will have 5-10 books in French total.

There used to be a place in Westwood called Le Cite des Livres that sold nothing but French books, but they appear to have closed.

Anybody know any other alternatives.

There is an online site I've used: French Language Book Boutique

The first online boutique in the USA
completely devoted to untranslated French literature!

Now THIS is what I was looking for. The books are pretty expensive and the shipping is really high, but it appear to be the only choice. If a book is marked at 5.50 Euros, it should be about $6, but this place seems to charge about $11 and tacks on high shipping.

Anybody know of any other places or is this really my only option?

Thanks.

Awesome! Thanks.

Some of the stores referenced have great prices on the actual books, but the shipping kills it every time. There has got to be a place to buy French books that doesn't require me to get a second job just to pay for them.

Thanks again.
