 books for Intermediate standard C

Having received lots of book tokens for Xmas, I wish to put them to good
use and am looking for a good book that leads on from K&R2. The two
books below caught my eye whilst looking through Amazons' listings.

      Advanced C. Structured Programming by John Ogilvie

      Data Structures and Program Design Using C by Robert Kruse

Looking at the bibliography in the FAQ I thought that these were worth
considering.

      C Traps and Pitfalls by Andrew Koenig

      Algorithms in C by Robert Sedgewick

Any thoughts on these or other suggestions. I'm not looking for anything
too specialised. I.e. Nothing along the lines of *serial comms in C* or
some such.

Have fun, it's not worth it otherwise.

The book length version of the C-faq list is highly recommended.
Steve, what's the title?  "The C Programming FAQs", I believe, by
Steve Summit.  It's quite a good companion to K&R2, actually.

I don't know either of these books, but the title of the second book
seems more appealing to me than the first.  :-)

Both of these are fine books.

You might consider purchasing books of a more general nature, such as
Knuth's TAOCP series, or "Design Patterns" by Gamma, Helm, Johnson and
Vlissides.  Another potential good read would be Allen Holub's
"Compiler Design in C" or Fraser and Hanson's "A Retargetable C
Compiler: Design and Implementation".

Koenig and Sedgewick are both good; I don't know the others.  The
second book you buy on C is probably Harbison and Steele, since it's
an invaluable reference.  The third is the hardcopy C FAQ; after that
you are on your own.

I already have Harbison & Steele, mainly due to recommendations seen
here and in the on-line FAQ.

I was thinking of this but then thought that there might be a new
edition when C9X is ratified and so I've held back on buying it.

Thanks.

That may be a while - and the book isn't that expensive.
