Established in 2007 by the Leatherby Libraries, the Community of Readers is the summer reading program for Chapman University. This program is open to everyone who has borrowing privileges at the Leatherby Libraries and a current library account, including students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Members select books from the Leatherby Libraries and receive prizes upon submission of their first review. The only requirement is that books must be obtained through the Leatherby Libraries.

Title: Siddhartha
Author: Hermann Hesse
Call Number: PT2617.E85 S513 1951a 
Location: 2nd Floor Arts and Humanities
Rating: Highly Recommended
Book Review: On his quest for enlightenment, a young Siddhartha abandons  all material possessions and adopts the life of a wandering ascetic.  Restless and yearning to learn more, he later immerses himself in the world of the flesh.  Hesse's lyrical and poetic story follows Siddhartha's spiritual birth, death and eventual rebirth--I would highly recommend this book to anyone on a journey of personal growth and transformation.
