    They say the virus dies on non living surfaces after 3 hours but lysol would kill it but might make your ink smudge.

    Use wipes and wipe it down thoroughly and let it dry.

    Then read it.

    Burial. Bury it in your garden. Give it a week to about 10 days. The bacteria in the soil negates COVID-19 in that time. When recovered you could also let it soak in a bowl of water with a dash of disinfectant for a few hours, just to be sure.

    CDC has informed and knows that the virus does not last very long on surfaces. You can just not touch it and wash your hands after setting it down for a few hours to a full day until the virus dries up and dies. Wipe the cover well with a disinfectant wipe (lysol or clorox wipe) and you can use a clorox or lysol or any disinfectant spray to fan through the pages and spray them lighty with a disinfectant spray. Be careful with bleach based sprays, they could damage the book by removing the ink. 

    Or you can just throw it out and get a new one. If you choose to dispose of it be sure to seal it in it's own plastic air-tight bag to lock any contaminents on it in so it doesn't have the possability of infecting anyone.

    Just give it a light spray with Lysol or any type of aerosol disinfectant.
