I am an A2 French student looking to enhance my reading skills in French. I have just finished reading 'un sac de billes' by Joseph Joffo and I am looking to read another book of a similar level. Any book suggestions are also welcome!

Merci beaucoup!

If you enjoyed Un Sac de Billes try any other Joffo novel - particularly Anna et son orchestre and La jeune fille au pair.

Other books which aren't too difficult are:

Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt: Monsieur Ibrahim et les fleurs du Coran
Alain Fournier: Le Grand Meaulnes
Georges Simenon: any of the Maigret series (take your pick, there are about 80! - these are detective stories)

You should be able to order these online from booksellers like Amazon or at large bookshops like Waterstones. If you can't find them on Amazon.co.uk you can go to Amazon.fr and order them there; you'll have to pay more for postage, however.
