Covid-19 Cover Story

Since I have been sheltering in place at home among my books. I decided to tell a story using book covers.

I had a few rules for this story.

First, the cover must come from my Penguin Popular Classics collection.

Second, the title can be a little bit of a stretch, but not too much.

Third, it must be a book that I have read.

So here is my Covid-19 Cover Story.
