Thank you all for recommendations so far.

Daravine: if I could borrow *The C Programming Language, 2nd Edition, by
Kernighan and Ritchie.* That would be wonderful.

Andy: Thank you for the recommendations.

Jim: I am looking into coming in on Tuesdays to attend the C class.

Thanks for all the given and upcoming recommendations
