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 Bone Clocks was an interesting read, but I couldn't help questioning what the point was throughout. The chapters themselves are interesting, engaging vignettes; however, the overall plot of the book is disjointed and scattered. The reader doesn't fully understand what the narrative actually is until the second to last chapter, which is intended to be an exciting climax, but I found myself not really caring what happened. This book is almost better read as a series of short stories than as a novel. Mitchell does an excellent job of creating unique voices for each of the characters; I just wish I cared more about what happened to them.
