Hi, I'm an American lady, love reading. We were in London but my husband's job has now brought him to France (sorry for the life story) so I transferred to here. I'd like to start a thread here for well-written and amusing English books under 3 euros. I'll start by recommending H.H.Munro (Saki) Complete Stories. Love to hear from others (no chicklit, gore, porn or horror please, just "good funny reads".)

Nice idea Jilly,
looked for the book but not available in Kindle format yet !
I clicked on the 'I Would like this book in Ebook please link', hope editor reacts.

Bookworm, (don't know if you are French or English speaking - native), but really sorry about that, the search function for these forums is very strange. There is a complete Saki on Kindle, but when I try to insert the link I find something that looks like a print book. Really puzzled.

No, I completely messed up, it's not there. However if don't know his stuff, then a lot of the stories are in Beasts and Super-Beasts but I dont know about the quality of this free edition. The "inserer un lien produit" is not that easy to use.

no problem,
'insert a product link' direct to Amazon products, to insert a link just 'cut and paste' it
I loaded the Beasts &..., will continue looking for the other,
Thanks

OK I'm making another suggestion, The Scarlet Letter, a 19th classic, but still great today.

I live in France and I'm English, I belong to a book club and we read lots of English books, so I'm happy to update on books we have read. I'm just about to start 'The God of Small Things' by Roy, so will let you know how it goes. And I look at the Scarlet Letter. Nichola x

Hi Nichola, is your book club just for Kindle or in general? How many guys do you know who have Kindle over here, I'm hearing of more and more, quite surprising. Rocky thanks I'll look at your book

Should have said, Scarlet Letter is not "amusing" (my original idea). But very good.

No one has a Kindle in the group, it is just a group of English speaking booklovers who live nearby each other. I don't know anyone who has a Kindle in France but lots of my friends in England do, but as I am an addictive reader and my book shelves are getting too full I though that it was a good idea. However, I've not received mine yet, it will be for Christmas, but I am already choosing the books I am going to get!

If you look at Gutenberg, there are several Saki titles there that you can download for free.

If you don't know this site it is a wonderful one for finding out of print works.

Hi I'm not a native English speaker, but "what the hell" - hope I'm welcome here. Nichola roughly what area do you live in? There are lots of Kindles in Paris area, not many on these boards it seems...

Hi Rocky,
started reading last night, only just met Luke and Omar but so far, I like it and feel like finishing the book so that's positive I suppose :)

Zen and the Diary of a B&B Owner is a humorous read.

Here is another great book by Saki, it's a complete novel, not a collection, and it offers a marvellous cynical picture of upper-class life at the beginning of the last century, The Unbearable Bassington - and it's free!

Paris kindle owner here.

Does anyone know if you switch your account from amazon.com to amazon.fr if you lose access to your archived books?

Ornett, there's a lot of discussions of the intricacies on this thread here http://www.amazon.fr/forum/kindle/ref=cm_cd_ttp_ef_tft_tp?_encoding=UTF8&cdForum=FxK9MV65I694XV&cdThread=Tx3EG0XIHBRR1NJ

Thank you for posting this thread, Jilly! My novels are women's fiction and romance (no chick lit). They can all be found here: http://www.amazon.fr/Chicki-Brown/e/B003U6RT96/ref=ntt_athr_dp_pel_pop_1
