She just tweeted about this book: Ender's Game by Orsen Scott Card

Also, I was going back through her old tweets and saw she made reference to Legends of the Fall. It is a book by Jim Harrison but also a movie starring Brad Pitt so idk whether she was referencing the book or movie.

This is not a book but a poem (although the author does have a book of poems) but Black Book in Rainy Weather by Sylvia Plath.

I love how she tweeted the name of the book like it was a response to sarab's post at her.

Great list. I'm not so much here for Ender's Game, though, considering the author's numerous homophobic remarks.  Undecided

I'm currently read the first installment of LOTR and I'm such a slowpoke. I have so many things at hand now, but I really want to curl up with the book.

Anyway, I added a link for Brief History of Time. I found it and posted it before, but there it is again for those who are having a hard time to find a copy (like I did).

so with Vanessa's latest tweet, we can add Flowers in the Attic by V.C. Andrews (the books and movie).  That is book one of a five part series.  I LOVE V.C. ANDREWS.  Those books are my guilty pleasure (well, the old series, I have not picked up a new series in years.)  My favorite series is the Ruby (Landry) series.  I collect V.C. Andrews books!  I go to the goodwill every month to see if they have one I don't have yet, and I scope garage sales every summer.  

I tried to attach of photo of my book case but it's too big of a file to fit.

I realize that this thread is a book club of what Vanessa has read, however, I started reading a book today that I think she should read and since I'm 80% sure she does read these threads I am coming here to suggest it (rather than Facebook or twitter that I'm pretty sure she doesn't read). 

So Vanessa if you're reading this, you should read this book.  I've only read the first 3.5 chapters but I immediately thought of you and what you said on your livestream a few months back about nature:
The Earth Path (grounding your spirit in the rhythms of nature) by Starhawk

Didn't she talk about a book The Creative Habit by Twyla Tharp??? I'm pretty sure.

Yeah she did. I finished reading it a few days ago, and whilst it's an interesting read for generating ideas and introducing new activities into your daily routine, it's not that 'compelling' as a complete read, but nice to dip in and out of if you're finding yourself a little thin on the ground for ideas.

maybe she was using psychedelic as a description rather than a category?

we mentioned updating this, here is a list of the ones she has tweeted recently

also, I had gone back and read some of her posts here on this site and she mentioned reading a book that was recently made into a movie
extremely loud and incredibly close by jonathan safron foer

and from twitter:

Plants of the Gods: origins of Hallucinogenic use - Richard Evans Shultes and Albert Hofmann
Men and Gods - Rex Warner
The Phantom Tollbooth - Norton Juster
Visions of Cody - Jack Kerouac
The Power of Myth - Joseph Campbell with Bill Moyers (I believe this is based on the interview)
Native American Mythology - Hartley Burr Alexander
The World we used to Live in - (I can't see an author)
Goddesses, Whores, Wives, and (I can't see the rest)
America - Jean (?  I can't read it!)
Remember, be here now (book from a hotel gift shop)
World Mythology
Fowels
Madeline - Ludwig Bemelmans
The Lonely Doll - Dare Wrights
Eloise - Kay Thompson
The story of Babar
Habibi - Craig Thompson (graphic novel?)
Muzzling the Tiger - John W. Fay (I don't know if she actually read this one, I think it was more of a joke?)

I think that's it! all I can find with pictures anyway.  I didn't look through tweets, just the yfrog photos.
