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
This is a collection of the Dunk & Egg prequel novellas to Martin's well-known A Song of Ice and Fire series (which became Game of Thrones on HBO).  Set 100 years prior to the more famous series, these three stories follow a hedge knight named Ser Duncan (Dunk) and his squire, the young prince Aegon Targaryen, who masquerades as Egg.  They are lighter in tone, more straightforward, and not nearly so graphic as the ASOIAF books, making them appeal to a wider audience who just wants a fun fantasy romp.
