If you want some book which has many exercises, you could have a look at books recommended here: Suggest books in calculus to improve problem solving skills – Martin Sleziak Oct 6 '12 at 12:27

Maybe you can consider the two Dover books:

  1. Infinite Sequences and Series, AUTHOR: Konrad Knopp, Publication Date: June 1956, ISBN: 0486601536

  2. Infinite Series, AUTHOR: James M Hyslop, Publication Date: February 2006, ISBN: 0486450333

You can probably find a site to peruse examples in the books and see if the style works for you.

Thank goodness for (inexpensive) Dover Publications! – amWhy May 18 '13 at 3:04
I love how they take excellent books and give them a second life! Yes, very slow night indeed! – Amzoti May 18 '13 at 3:07
