Take a look at The Book Depository online and be instantly happy. They offer great prices and FREE shipping. Received my books in only a few days after ordering.

Sorry, forgot to mention that on amazon.fr you can also buy and sell used Englih books. A friend of mine does that regularly on Amazon.de and is very happy with it.

...and you can order English books from amazon.fr if everything else fails.

English bookshops in Cannes in Rue Bivouac, near the Post Office (no idea where it is, but it is often advertised on Riviera Radio),  and another at Rue Alexis Julien in Valbonne, just off the main square.

Small selection of paperback novels (airport stuff!) at Brittains' Home Stores near Valbonne, where you can also get English consumer goods at sensible prices.
