Interbook Typotex Ltd. Electronic Publishing House started to publish electronic books in January 2009. Via the portal called Interbook, an increasing number of prestigious academic and professional publications are made available in electronic format. E-books can be purchased not only in their entirety, but also by individual chapters. The project currently covers ~500 volumes, including books out of print. As opposed to photocopying texts, which is forbidden by Hungarian copyright law, downloading the publications from the Interbook webpage means a legal way of receiving copies of documents. The article gives a summary of the various new opportunities offered by the e-book portal for readers, authors and other publishers. The Interkönyv site gives access to current and eternal books and university course books in electronic format, ready to be purchased as a whole or by separate chapters.

Edition 2.0 In the life of our publishing house, Edition 2.0 is not simply a new series comprising certain contents, and it is not a topic finding a good name under a series title. Edition 2.0 is a publishing experiment, seeking a new alternative for reading books, by trying to align book publishing and the spirit of the internet. A book is traditionally a closed world, the crystallized form of the author's vision of the world and of the thoughts he wishes to pass on. It offers several types of additions as well: remarks in footnotes, index, glossary. Printing makes the published text final, closed - a station in the field of knowledge. The internet, by contrast, is flexible, ever-changing, and its stability was realized in its greatness. Traditionally, the author knows much more than the readers who do not know him nor the knowledge published.
