I'd get writer's cramp typing or writing down all my books, but I suppose it would be good to have a list too.
I suspect this person referred to Dawn's list as "shit" because of some of the wiccan influence, but even those books can have good bits.
I like a lot of Scott Cunningham's stuff, for example. I simply ignore the wiccan influences.
I certainly have some rather.. well, silly books, but even within those are some useful tidbits, some of which inspire or stoke the imagination.
Books are multifaceted tools, use what's good and ignore the rest... and even the best built hammer is pretty useless if what you need at the moment is a box wrench.
Just off the top of my head, in general, I'd say anything by Owen Davies or Ronald Hutton is good, though more of a historical perspective than anything. (I feel that's important to have though). A good number of my books are divination oriented as well.. but I suppose they count.
