Start with the classics: Niklaus Wirth's book Algorithms and Data Structures is available for free. Chapter 2 and 3 in particular talk about algorithms.

An excellent book to read is "Introduction to algorithms" by Cormen, Leiserson, Rivest.

Thats a good one and should be enough.Other books are for reference and difficult to read especially Cormen etc.I have Algorithms by Sedgewick and its good one.Cormen/Knuth books are too abstract and full of mathematical formulae.Nothing wrong in that but I am yet to see programmer who does infinite series calulation before writing code.
