I don't wish to diminish Knuth's work, but it's definitely not timeless.
For an alternative, see Sedgewick's "Algorithms in C/Pascal/whatever".
Not as rigorous about proving the properties of algorithms, but the
selection of algorithms is more modern, and the presentation is
palatable (instead of the assembly/flowchart mix that Knuth is so fond of).
There are other algorithm collections.
The largest one is the Internet itself. A search engine or Wikipedia
would be my first stop when looking for an algorithm.
(Agreeing with the rest.)
