ISO recommendations for bread-baking books?

I'm just getting started making yeast breads and would like to know if anyone has some favorite bread-making cookbooks they could recommend.
I successfully made a wonderful loaf of homemade bread today....for, what else? Hot turkey sandwiches! It gave me enough confidence to delve into other types of breads....Challah, more artisan-type breads...I heard "The Bread Bakers Apprentice" is a good one, and "The Bread Bible". Anything else?
Thanks!
Jen

I like the King Arthur Flour Baker's Companion Book. Google King Arthur Flour.

You can learn a lot from Reinhart's book but the 5 minutes a day recipes work well for us.
