    Smile Request: Book list on Number Theory

    Hello,

    I am new to this forum.

    I am looking for 2-3 books on number theory, that is good reading and helps to build an understanding of the subject. Intermediate to advanced in standard. Can anyone here suggest me some?

    Also I understand that this topic might already have been discussed here. So if anybody kindly provide me the link to an early discussion that would be nice.

    Thanks and regards

    The classic work is Hardy & Wright: "An Introduction to the Theory of Numbers", currently(?) available from Oxford University Press, which is considered a little old-fashioned nowadays but it's definitely worth while.
