How to find books in french to down load

I noticed that you can download books for listening and making lessons from. How would i find a book in French to download and make a lesson from? thank you for any help you may have :)`

Hi Brandie,

TV5 MONDE has a digital library with more than 600 PDFs in French (most of them are classics) that you can download and import into LingQ:

However, it’s probably not a good idea to read / listen to classics (pre-1970) before you’re on an advanced level in French because the vocabulary of the classics (for ex., ca. 15-20 percent of the words in Flaubert’s “Madame Bovary”) tends to be obsolete,
On an intermediate level it’s better to focus on “fr. contemporain” (disons: Jean-Christophe Grangé, etc.).

Hope that helps,
