Thanks for the recommendation! When you say "Feller", do you mean this book? [1]

I'm already looking forward to it.

Feller's two volume classic [1] has plenty of motivation - his exposition of combinatorics at the beginning of the first volume is a great introduction to that subject! However, it wasn't written with algorithms in mind.

Venkatesh's more recent volume [2] is very well motivated and is better suited to modern engineering applications. Both have lots of exercises.
