Pure Textuality was established on May 2, 2011 by Jena Gregoire as the sole reviewer.  In January 2012, Jena decided it was high time to bring a team on board and put a request on the site and on Twitter for new reviewers wanted.  Since then, the team has had members come and go, some even going on to start book blogs of their own.

The entire team at Pure Textuality has made a promise to give a fair and honest review.

Pure Textuality nor any of its individual reviewers receive any form of compensation for reviews.
