Today it’s a little bit of book news, a little bit of art news, a little bit of royals and a little bit of military history. Happy Reading!

Did you hear that another painting stolen by the Nazis has been recovered? Bravo to the person who recognized the stolen artwork.

I was not expecting so much controversy about the France 2024 Olympics logo. Personally, I love it. What do you think?

If you are a royal watcher like me, you might enjoy reading this article from Reuters about the heir to the Japanese throne. The current Emperor doesn’t have any sons, so his younger brother is next in line and after that his young son. The Emperor does have a daughter. A very lovely and intelligent daughter. But because she is female she may not ascend to the throne. I have thoughts on this that I’ll keep to myself.

The BBC has a fun article on rewatching old films.

Another interesting piece by the BBC, how art created stereotypes of the Arab world.

This is so true: if indie bookstores want to be inclusive, they need to highlight romance.

Fortnum’s timeline: the first 312 years. This was so much fun to read. I love Fortnums!

I need to live inside this old manor house. I can picture me drinking my Fortnums tea in the garden.

Quiz: Which Classic Mystery Should You Read? I took the quiz and my answer was And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie.

Helen Mirren’s Costumes in ‘Catherine the Great’ Are a Gorgeous History Lesson.
