Haven't I changed? Why wouldn't she do the same? He was enjoying observing her like that, from a distance, until their gazes met in the midst of a forest of people in movement. They smiled and walked toward each other, meeting near the center of the cloister. Bety spoke first. Afterwards they kept their arms on each other's shoulders as they talked.
Don't worry. Do your thing. We'll talk later.

- Gone Again?
Remember, I'm used to book parties; I know you have to deal with all the guests. We'll catch up later. When the reception's over and everybody's gone, wait for me right here in the cloister. Will you? Bety went back to work while Enrique sought out some more acquaintances to talk with. Later, along with the others, he listened to the speeches by local politicians and the museum's cultural leadership, given in the sublime San Telmo Church. The church's stonework, restored and skillfully lit, shined, while the canvases painted by Sert, which had always made such an impression on him, made up the perfect frame.
Later they went back to the cloister, where the warm evening weather set the ideal temperature for the catered dinner. Enrique kept up conversations with his fellow party attendees, but didn't let Bety out of his sight, confirming the display of confidence he had first noticed. The opening played out pleasantly, and Enrique even had a few hearty laughs with some old acquaintances. He hadn't drunk enough to even be tipsy, and so he knew that his mood had definitely improved for the better. He felt truly glad to see Bety again, and he'd left his doldrums behind.
The atmosphere also did its part; after all, he was surrounded by any number of intelligent individuals with whom he could have the kind of conversations he liked.
The Bioarchaeology of Artificial Cranial Modifications
On one occasion, finding himself momentarily alone in a transition between groups, he spotted a peculiar man about seventy years old, wearing an impeccable cream-colored suit, bow tie, and hat. He was sitting, cane in hand, on the cloister's stone parapet. He lifted his hat, greeting Enrique from afar. Then he got up and walked toward him, displaying a remarkably upright posture.
He was tall, well over six feet, with broad shoulders and a slender frame. He spoke in Spanish with an accent that could only be from the United States. Enrique scrutinized his face. Anyone would have defined him as interesting. His appearance was that of a man who had lived in style and sport. He was tan, with the kind of wrinkles that come from prolonged exposure to the sun. But the most engaging part of his appearance was his eyes, intensely blue, that seemed to project a notable curiosity. I've had the pleasure of reading a few of your novels.
But I only wanted to say hello because I know Bety personally, and she's told me a great deal about you. I am—or rather, was—an art restorer and curator for a number of museums. But I devote my free time, which is actually all my time, to personal research projects.

After Hart first adapted the U. Declaration of Independence into an electronic document in , Project Gutenberg was launched to create electronic copies of more texts, especially books. Department of Defense began concept development for a portable electronic delivery device for technical maintenance information called project PEAM, the Portable Electronic Aid for Maintenance.
Four prototypes were produced and delivered for testing in , and tests were completed in The final summary report was produced in by the U.
Peter Kincaid. Harkins and Stephen H. Morriss as inventors. In , Sony launched the Data Discman , an electronic book reader that could read e-books that were stored on CDs. One of the electronic publications that could be played on the Data Discman was called The Library of the Future. The scope of the subject matter of these e-books included technical manuals for hardware, manufacturing techniques, and other subjects. In , Paul Baim released a freeware HyperCard stack, called Ebook, that allowed easy import of any text file to create a pageable version similar to an electronic paperback book.
A notable feature was automatic tracking of the last page read so that on returning to the 'book' you were taken back to where you had previously left off reading. The title of this stack may have been the first instance of the term 'ebook' used in the modern context. As e-book formats emerged and proliferated, [ citation needed ] some garnered support from major software companies, such as Adobe with its PDF format that was introduced in Different e-reader devices followed different formats, most of them accepting books in only one or a few formats, thereby fragmenting the e-book market even more.
Due to the exclusiveness and limited readerships of e-books, the fractured market of independent publishers and specialty authors lacked consensus regarding a standard for packaging and selling e-books. Meanwhile, scholars formed the Text Encoding Initiative , which developed consensus guidelines for encoding books and other materials of scholarly interest for a variety of analytic uses as well as reading, and countless literary and other works have been developed using the TEI approach.
In the late s, a consortium formed to develop the Open eBook format as a way for authors and publishers to provide a single source-document which many book-reading software and hardware platforms could handle. Focused on portability, Open eBook as defined required subsets of XHTML and CSS ; a set of multimedia formats others could be used, but there must also be a fallback in one of the required formats , and an XML schema for a "manifest", to list the components of a given e-book, identify a table of contents, cover art, and so on. Google Books has converted many public domain works to this open format.
In , e-books continued to gain in their own specialist and underground markets. Unofficial and occasionally unauthorized catalogs of books became available on the web, and sites devoted to e-books began disseminating information about e-books to the public. Consumer e-book publishing market are controlled by the "Big Five". In , libraries began offering free downloadable popular fiction and non-fiction e-books to the public, launching an e-book lending model that worked much more successfully for public libraries.
The U. National Library of Medicine has for many years provided PubMed , a comprehensive bibliography of medical literature. In early , NLM set up the PubMed Central repository, which stores full-text e-book versions of many medical journal articles and books, through cooperation with scholars and publishers in the field.
Pubmed Central also now provides archiving and access to over 4. Despite the widespread adoption of e-books, some publishers and authors have not endorsed the concept of electronic publishing , citing issues with user demand, copyright infringement and challenges with proprietary devices and systems.
This survey found significant barriers to conducting interlibrary loan for e-books.
Much more than documents.
Mellon Foundation. Although the demand for e-book services in libraries has grown in the first two decades of the 21st century, difficulties keep libraries from providing some e-books to clients. When a library purchases an e-book license, the cost is at least three times what it would be for a personal consumer. However, some studies have found the opposite effect to be true for example, Hilton and Wikey The Internet Archive and Open Library offer more than six million fully accessible public domain e-books.
Project Gutenberg has over 52, freely available public domain e-books. An e-reader , also called an e-book reader or e-book device , is a mobile electronic device that is designed primarily for the purpose of reading e-books and digital periodicals. An e-reader is similar in form, but more limited in purpose than a tablet.
In comparison to tablets, many e-readers are better than tablets for reading because they are more portable, have better readability in sunlight and have longer battery life. Until late , use of an e-reader was not allowed on airplanes during takeoff and landing by the FAA. Some of the major book retailers and multiple third-party developers offer free and in some third-party cases, premium paid e-reader software applications apps for the Mac and PC computers as well as for Android, Blackberry, iPad, iPhone, Windows Phone and Palm OS devices to allow the reading of e-books and other documents independently of dedicated e-book devices.
Writers and publishers have many formats to choose from when publishing e-books. Each format has advantages and disadvantages. The most popular e-readers  and their natively supported formats are shown below:. Most e-book publishers do not warn their customers about the possible implications of the digital rights management tied to their products.
Generally, they claim that digital rights management is meant to prevent illegal copying of the e-book.

However, in many cases, it is also possible that digital rights management will result in the complete denial of access by the purchaser to the e-book. The first major publisher to omit DRM was Tor Books , one of the largest publishers of science fiction and fantasy, in Some e-books are produced simultaneously with the production of a printed format, as described in electronic publishing , though in many instances they may not be put on sale until later.
Often, e-books are produced from pre-existing hard-copy books, generally by document scanning , sometimes with the use of robotic book scanners , having the technology to quickly scan books without damaging the original print edition. Scanning a book produces a set of image files, which may additionally be converted into text format by an OCR program.
