We recently compiled a list of ten women music writers to read now, as recommended by other writers. We also asked for your reccomendations on books, blogs, articles or Twitter feeds written by a woman and focusing on music. You responded enthusiastically via the story comments and on Facebook with some obviously over-looked classics and surprising new favorites. Here are five more writers that you would add to the reading list.

  • Patti Smith
    Smith's recent book, Just Kids, is about her relationship with Robert Mapplethorpe
    —Caroline Turley
