Not books, but still, wow:
Reports this morning that there's been a pretty large-scale theft of art from the Paris Museum of Modern Art: the works taken were "Le Pigeon aux Petits Pois" by Picasso; "La Pastorale" by Matisse; "L'Olivier Près de l'Estaque" by Braque; "La Femme a l'Eventail" by Modigliani, and "Nature Morte aux Chandeliers" by Fernand Léger.
The stolen works are estimated to be worth the equivalent of
$620 million (more like $120 million).
More from the BBC.
