Math Focus: Abstract maths!
Pls suggest a good book

My mother has asked me to choose anything of my liking for my birthday present.
I want to get some good book on interesting maths. Will you please suggest me some of the books which I can buy and enjoy?
P.S:I do not want traditional schoolbooks. But if u could tell me inspirational books which will help me explore the beauty of math and make me wonder, I will be grateful.

Recreations In The Theory Of Numbers

Recreations in the Theory of Numbers (Dover Recreational Math): Albert H. Beiler: 9780486210964: Books

You can buy it new for less than $10 (U.S.) and it will give you years of mathematical enjoyment.

Math Focus: Number theory, computational mathematics, combinatorics, FOM, symbolic logic, TCS, algorithms
Perhaps The Man Who Loved Only Numbers which is quite an interesting read.
