I want to start baking, can you suggest a book?

I am the proud owner of a new Kitchenaid stand mixer (arrived Tuesday from Amazon)and I'm itching to start using it. Unfortunately the cookbooks I have don't
offer much as far as bread and pastry, wich is what I want to make. I've narrowed down my Amazon wish list and was hoping you could give some more guidance as to my final decision.

For Baking Breads:
Nancy Silverton's Breads from the La Brea Bakery
The Bread Baker's Apprentice
The Italian Baker
The Bread Bible

For Pies, Cookies, Muffins, Cakes, Tarts etc....
How to Be a Domestic Goddess
The King Arthur Flour Baker's Companion
Baking by Flavor

If you have any other recomendations I would love to hear them.

Thank You, Kristine
