Ebookezvous is a French distributor who has been involved in the eBook space since 1999. The company has just opened up a digital store in the US with over 170,000 titles from 400 different publishers.
The new store is available online and has a English and French UI, to allow prospective patrons to browse their selection of books.

I hope this site and associated reading applications allow many Americans, French or Francophone cultures lovers, to finally have immediate access to a supply of very large selection of French books.”
There is a large selection of eBooks in eBookezvous catalog. It has thousands of classics, all the way to the latest bestsellers.
