Pure Textuality reviews are written from a fair, honest point of view. Please remember they are reviewer opinions and represent the reviewer’s personal tastes.
Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Disclaimer – All books reviewed on Pure Textuality are either purchased by the reviewer, given by the author/publisher or acquired through NetGalley or Edelweiss for a fair and honest review. None of the reviewers here at Pure Textuality are compensated in any way by the authors and/or publishers of the books being reviewed.
ARC’s & Galley Bound Copies - We gladly accept advanced reader copies (ARC’s)/galley bound copies to review, as well as books that have been out for a while. If you are sending us an ARC/galley for review, we will try to get the review up on or very close to the book’s release date. Just remember that if you want a review done by the book’s release date, we need enough time to plan on the book being in our schedule. Please email email@example.com for our mailing address.
PURE TEXTUALITY IS REGISTERED ON BOTH NETGALLEY AND EDELWEISS. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know prior to sending a NetGalley or Edelweiss widget. Several of us are registered and depending on who will review your book, you may need to use a different address.
We happily accept eBooks for review. We are not opposed to the advancement of the electronic age! *wink wink* However, we do not have every eReader on the market. The formats we can accept are as follows:
- Kindle books (.prc files)
- PDF (Portable Document Format)
- .mobi files with no Document Rights Management (DRM) protections
- .epub files
Audiobooks – We happen to love audiobooks. As much as we would love for Pure Textuality to be our full time job, that is not the case…..yet. In the meantime, audiobooks allow us to “read” while at our day jobs. That’s 8 hours of reading time every day that we would not otherwise have. If you have your book as an audio book, we would gladly accept it. Just shoot us an e-mail and we will work out the details.
Books supplied to Pure Textuality, whether it be physical, audio or electronic, will never be duplicated, sold or distributed in any way by Pure Textuality without the written permission of the author.
We have received a few questions here and there regarding our rating system here at Pure Textuality and how we decide what is “3 stars” or “5 heels” or “4 fangs”. All of the Pure Textuality reviewers use a basic 1-5 scale rating system. The “stars” or “heels” or “fangs” is just our own personal touch. The fundamentals of the rating system itself are the same.
The basics of our rating system are as follows :
|1||Didn’t appeal for several different reasons.|
|2||An OK work, but was found lacking in several aspects.|
|3||Well written and entertaining.|
|4||An excellent work, this would make a good addition to your library.|
|5||WOW!! A MUST read.|
|DNF||Did Not Finish (Books that we just couldn’t ride out to the end)|
