First, I'm wondering if anyone has tips generally or for a specific language for finding relatively inexpensive reading materials.

Second, more specifically, I'm looking for a particular book. I would love to get my hands on an unabridged French copy of Les Misérables for practice. I read French at an advanced level and though I picked up some random novels last time I was in France, most of them turned out to be translations from English (I didn't realize because the authors weren't famous and didn't have obvious English/American names). I adore Les Mis and would like to have a copy for my collection, but when I checked Amazon all the copies appeared to be abbreviated learners editions. I checked Amazon.fr and everything was "extraits" or some other abridged version (you can tell from the pages, the full novel should be about 1900 pages total en français). Does anyone know where I might be able to get a copy, preferably for less than $30 or so?
