What would have made Italian Short Stories for Beginners better?

Would be useful if you had access to aleast a PDF. I thought I could purchase a PDF from Amazon but only got some on-line webviewer version you can't download to a Kindle.
Either this or spend an additional amount an buy anoher paper version.
