Baking Books Worth Owning

A Listmania! list by R. Billings (Holland, MI)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "There are plenty of baking books out there, but how many can you really fit on your shelf? I tend to check a cookbook out of the library and "test drive" it before buying, so only a treasured few actually have a permanent place in my home. Here are my top picks for books that are actually worth owning if your tastes run--as mine do--toward the caramelly, chocolatey, messy, peanut buttery, non-low-fat, very American, made-with-real-ingredients end of the baking spectrum."
