Thank you! Hopefully it won't be a whole month. My LO has been there for a few months but we just got back together so all this is new to me. Do you know what happened? I got a letter on Monday and he said that that they were on LD but didn't say why

If anybody can't get through to the phones, email them and ask them your question. They usually will email you back. I'm planning on emailing them myself. If anybody needs the email address, let me know and I'll PM it to you.

Got a letter yesterday from my LO. He said it will be after the new year before they are released off lockdown. We had just gotten back together a week before they were put on lockdown. We hadn't spoken in 2 years prior to this and he wasn't locked up then. Now, I'm going crazy without hearing his voice. I need advice on things to do to occupy my time. He has 32 months left. Also, how do I send books to him?

Yea the letter I got yesterday too from my LO said the same thing that they wouldnít be off until the 1st of the year that is crazy! But to send books and magazines. I use a site called special needs express.com (shopsnx.com) I seen some ppl say they use amazon but I never have. He just tells me what he wants and I just order off that site.

Whichever bookstore you order through, be sure they ship using the US Post Office only, no Fedex or UPS. The first line(s) of the address label has to have his name and inmate ID number, and the rest of it is the same address as where you send inmate letters.

Hello. I've been sick with a cold since last Tuesday and my birthday is on Wednesday so I've been focusing on recovering so hopefully, I can feel better by then. I haven't wrote my LO since I've been sick but when I feel myself again, I will write him.

Oh wow. I'm hoping that I will get a letter from my LO soon from my friend since I had all of my letters from my LO be sent to her PO Box due to family issues. I used a website called Hamilton Book . They do ship to prisons since I decided to ask before I placed the order. This is their shipping policy: We normally ship within 48 hours. If an item is temporarily out of stock, a second shipment will be made, normally in 14 days, but in no case later than 60 days. All shipments are made via U.S. Postal Service. Delivery is normally within 3 to 15 days. We ship only to addresses with United States Zip Codes. However, due to customs and content restrictions, we do not currently ship to APO and FPO addresses.

Shipping charges are $4.00 per order. We will ship all available items immediately. If any item is temporarily out of stock, we will make a second shipment as soon as possible. We do not charge extra to make a second shipment and do not hold the shipment of available items if one item is temporarily out of stock.

The books are very cheap in price by the way. If you have any questions about the website, let me know and I'll be glad to help you

They can be either hard or soft cover books from a bookstore. Some lower security prisons (minimum & low) allow paperbacks to come directly from home, but all hardbacks must come from the publisher or a bookstore.

I know when my LO was in another prison before he got to Big Sandy, I could only send him paperback at the time since he was in the SHU since I started to send him hardback and paperback but I'm glad I did call before I ordered the books. I think you can send hardback and paperbacks to your LO when ordering books except the SHU which I think it's paperback but I'm not sure. Either look in the handbook or call them to make sure.
