Swedish (Children) Books

After reading this amazing article (https://sweden.se/culture-traditions/swedish-childrens-literature/), I'm ready to start reading books in Swedish.

Unfortunately, it turns out to be very tricky to actually buy books in Swedish. There is no Swedish Amazon. The US, UK and German versions have almost none. And most eBook stores like Bokus (http://www.bokus.com/) require a Swedish address.

I want to read the books on my Kindle (so either ".mobi" or ".pdf" would be preferred). Currently, it seems like Bokus is the only solution. Do they offer ".mobi" files?

Do you know another method to legally obtain Swedish eBooks?

I've not come across children's ebooks, but there are some childrens stories here in .pdf format. http://www.ungafakta.se/sagor/

Btw, I've never ordered ebooks from Bokus but I've had no problems ordering physical books.

Wow, thank you so so much, I was barely able to find a few pages of Emil i Lönneberga, but this site is great and has so many stories. Tack!

This site is great. I bought a few books last summer when I was in Sweden, but I have been looking for new material. Tusen Tack!

Why not try the publishing house LL-Forlaget (http://lattlast.se/ll-forlaget)? From what I understand, it also offers e-books and has an option to ship the books to an overseas address. The texts are easy-to-read.

I came across this today. It's a list of short text and stories by grammar and vocabulary difficulty, and all of them can be read directly from the site: https://interlinearbooks.com/literature/swedish/short-texts/

I had a look at that article, and it was very interesting. I just borrow some books from my friend (who happens to be from Sweden).
