more geek woman reading

hfnuala pointed us to this full entry about geeky books written by women:
http://www.livejournal.com/users/cassiphone/32974.html
It includes a shortlist of 21 (which I posted about here) and "a long list of all the suggested works (122)"

So here I go again with the "bolding stuff I've read".
And as always I'm open to hearing arguments why I should read the ones I haven't read.
