Almost all institutions will allow you to send books to an inmate. There are a few important things you should know that apply whenever sending inmates a book in prison or jail.
- The most important thing to know is that '''ALL BOOKS MUST BE PAPERBACK'''! The prison or jail will reject any book that is in a different type if binding, spiral and hardcovers will always be rejected.
- Paperback books '''MUST BE NEW''', no used books are allowed for security reasons.
- You cannot ship the books in yourself, they must come from a reputable vendor such as [http://gan.doubleclick.net/gan_impression?lid=41000000012871747&pubid=21000000000242784 Barnes & Noble] or [http://www.amazon.com/s?ie=UTF8&redirect=true&ref_=sr_nr_p_n_feature_browse-b_mrr_0&bbn=283155&qid=1319225374&rnid=618072011&rh=n%3A283155%2Cp_n_feature_browse-bin%3A2656022011&_encoding=UTF8&tag=httpwwwkonmar-20&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=390957 Amazon.com].
