With all the reading of posts listed I can't believe no one has posted!
I'm currently in Chautauqua, New York so my post name is "interesting." I'm KathyH from orange, California, I'll be back in my office the 17th and will post more then. I work at a large church in Orange. Also, I was in a previous B&N Book Group with Mr. Phillips and look forward to the discussions in this one.

I participated in the BNU discussion of The Egyptologist a couple of years ago.
I just started Angelica last night and will be back in a few days with some comments.
Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.

This is my first BN book club, and the first Arthur Phillips book I have read. I picked up the book on Saturday evening and finished it tonight. I could hardly put it down, but my house, two young boys and my two dogs insisted I put it down occasionally!
I live in Iowa City and look forward to discussing this awesome book.

Just got my copy of Angelica today; I can't wait to join the rest of you in reading and chatting.

My name is Gwen and I am happy to read this book. I saw it from a link from Stephen King's website. I look forward to reading it.

Here's where we can say a bit about ourselves and what brings us here. Has anyone in the book clubs read either of Arthur Phillips's novels The Egyptologist or Prague? Tell us what's been on your bookshelf!
Yes, Prague is one of my favorite novels which I read around the same time as another favorite, John Henry Days.
I was just wondering if Arthur knew either Colson Whitehead or Joshua Redman at Harvard, because I think they're all about the same age and I know that Arthur has a background in music as well.

Yes, I was a year ahead of Colson and the same year as Redman- strangely, I have never met either...
Learn more about Angelica.

We've just started, Stephanie. Glad you're here!
Thanks Rachel, I'm reading along so far but haven't been on much but that's changing now as I'm less busy now. Sorry but I was out of town and been busy with my kids. I'm here now so hopefully I'm not to late in the discussions. ~~Steph~~
