Looking for suggestions

I got a Barnes and Noble giftcard for Christmas and I am thinking about using it to get a new bread book.  I am looking for suggestions on books.

I already have Bread Baker's Apprentice and Rose Levy Beranbaum's Bread Bible.

To give you an idea of my style - from TFL I have made and added to my repetoire:

  • Norm's Onion Rolls
  • Wild Rice and Onion Bread
  • Sweet Potato Rolls
  • Sourdoughlady's Sourdough Bread 
  • Soft Pretzels
  • Blueberry Cream Cheese Braid
  • Buttermilk Cluster
  • Pita bread
  • Zola Blue's cinnamon rolls

Yup, I am kind of all over the place.  I don't have much specialized equipment, though I do have a great baking stone, a nice peel and firmly believe in parchment paper.

So what is your MUST have book that you turn to time and time again?
