There are no official statistics determining how many English speakers
live in France. There are only estimates, of more than 500,000 English
speakers, mostly British nationals, living in France. Britons living
in France number 300,000 (2000 est.) to 350,000. The second
largest group is U.S. citizens, where estimates from a variety of
sources suggest that "between 29,000 and 112,000 Americans live in
France". The French Embassy in Washington, reports that more than
61,000 Americans live in France, while the State Department reports
that "About 90,000 Americans live in France" .
Another source suggests that the number is closer to 110,000:
" * How many Americans live in France ? This is a frequently asked
question and the answer varies between 100,000 and 200,000 depending
on the source and the definition (with or without government staff and
army). A recently published (2003) map gives the following figures of
the largest (private sector only) US communities among the 4,1 million
American citizens living abroad (Source : AARO The Association of
Americans Residents Overseas, AAWE Asssociation of American Wives of
Europeans, ACA American Citizens Abroad, FAWCO Federation of
American Women's Clubs Overseas Inc., EBA European Benefits
Administrators) " 
Except for them, several thousands of Australians, who reside in
France; and several other native english speaking expatriots.
UK nationals living in France "tend to be retirees and waiters, while
the French [living in the UK, politicalguru] tend to be bankers and
executives.", and they tend to live mostly in the south of France,
in Provance. Americans tend to live around Paris.
As for reading habbits, an article from August 2004  discloses that
an English language monthly magazine sells some 50,000 copies all over
France. Another English language newspaper sells 30,000 nationwide. In
addition, France Free Voice claims to reach "100,000 English-speaking
readers every month."
