I have checked sci.stat.math before my original post. But it is
seriously flooded with junk posts. Before this problem is fixed, it is
probably not very helpful to post anything there.

I know my question is rudimentary. There are so many probability and
statistics textbook online, and it is difficult for me to figure out
which one fits my need. If you happen to know which book is the best
for me to learn convergence in distribution, please let me know. Thank
