Most FCI low security prisons and minimum security camps (maybe all of them) allow paperback books to be sent directly from home. All bop prisons require hardback books to be sent, in the US Mail only, from either the publisher or from a bookstore.

Once youíve sent the money it usually takes about a hr or less I believe to hit the account depending on how you send the money I send through Western union I have the app and itíll will tell me completed thatís how I know itís done and received

They’ve been on lockdown since Friday it’s nothings we can do now but wait and see when they’ll be let out. If you’ve sent letters he’ll get them.

Thanks u all so much. This is going to be a long four years but I truly appreciate you all. Because I was calling to the prison everyday and not getting a answer. Yes I did send the money through western union it said it was delivered not received. So I don't know what that means.

If you need a website to order books from, I highly recommend this website Hamilton Book. When my LO was in the SHU at another prison, I could only send him paperback at the time and I asked the company do they ship to a federal prison before I ordered the books and they said they do. All shipments are made via U.S. Postal Service. The books are super cheap in price by the way.

They 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. Shipping charges are $4.00 per order. If you have any questions about the website, please let me know and I will be glad to answer them

Sooo, quick question ladies, do any of u live on the West Coast & are planning to visit in March/April? If my hubby doesn't get HWH, I'll be visiting around then..I figured it'd be nice to have company & not be alone during that time, plus splitting costs would be cheaper for each of us/all..
