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.

The Book of Life

Title: The Book of Life
Author: Deborah Harkness
Location: 1st Floor McNaughton
Rating: Highly Recommended
Book Review: In this third book of Harkness’ All Souls Trilogy, Diana, a witch, and Matthew, a vampire, face new dangers as they try to discover the secrets contained by the Book of Life, a manuscript in the Bodleian Library at Oxford, which holds the key to saving the three non-human races – Witches, Vampires, and Daemons – from extinction.  A threatening figure from Matthew’s past reappears; and Diana must learn to control her newly found powers in order to protect her family. This is a fun and magical read, but I suggest reading the first two books in the trilogy before venturing onto this wild finale.
