I want to learn C

The C programming Language, Dennis Ritchie

Definitely the best book on C, but can also thoroughly recommend "C How
To Program" by Dietel and Dietel. I've got an older edition, but the
current one still seems to be an excellent choice.

Practical C Programming from O'Reilly

I can't really recommend this one, as it's not very thorough, and unlike
"The C Programming Language" it can't be used as a reference. I'd also
avoid anything written by Herbert Schildt - despite his self-promotion
as "the expert" on all matters C and C++ related, his books are
notoriously error ridden and Microsoft centric.
