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.

Book Review
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt, which won the Pulitzer prize and other acclaim, was easily the worst book I've read in some time.   The main character (along with most of the others) turned into such an unlikable and just plain dumb person that I hated him by the end.   Obviously there are others who have really liked this book, so it may be worth picking it up to see for yourself.  My advice if you do - stop reading if you aren't completely engrossed.  You won't miss anything and you'll save yourself a lot of frustration.
