If, in the past, we could say that the book was “the sarchofagus of text”, in the last few years the book, disembodied, has an extraordinary vitality: stored, transmitted in its digital essence; expanded, commented when it inhabits the networks; explored, located in search engines; read in computers, downloaded as ebook, printed on demand; shared, discussed in readers´clubs; fragmented, exhibited in publishers´ promotions… The book´s digital spirit has broken its paper bounds and it crosses the whole world.
