I have a little background on basic permutations and combinations and that's all prob/stat that I have in my body. So as a starter I don't want to divulge to the higher concepts of this discipline. With that said I want to find a book that can give me a solid foundation in counting ,venn diagrams, and reasoning. Can anyone the suggest a book or online material that will help? Thanks.

I found that Eccle's book on Mathematical Reasoning was good and easy to read for beginning set theory and counting. I actually think that book helped me in probability since I took that class first.
I suggest you read Samuel Goldberg's Probability: An Introduction. It is a clearly written introduction to discrete probability that begins with a discussion of set theory and includes a chapter on basic combinatorics.
Look up: Fifty Challenging Problems in Probability.
For something more serious: Larsen and Marx's Introduction to Mathematical Statistics
