On reading the book titles together, one gets the message, “The English patient had caught it on the beach. I should have stayed at home she said. Now she was in quarantine in the dark house of splendid isolation”.

“Still hope springs eternal with a little bit of luck and personal hygiene. The corona book of horror stories must end soon. Always remember clean hands save lives and when in doubt don't go out!” it reads.

Going through Shaw’s profile, one can easily identify his love for books and arranging them beautifully.
