For those who like to read, but are dirt poor like me, Librio publishes books for 1-3 € each. You can find several famous French works, as well as English works translated into French. (But check Project Gutenberg first if you want to download non-copyright protected works for free.) Their collections include literature, poetry, theatre, history, languages, travel guides, health, cooking, music, etc. You can buy Librio books at most book stores, or at alapage.com, amazon.fr and fnac.com.
