Default Pen Pal on DR in Terre Haute: What can I send? Package? Books?

Hey y'all
I have a pen pal on death row in Terre Haute. I'm from Germany and this whole BOP system is a little bit confusing for me.
I know which paper I'm allowed to use etc...Btw I think the rules are very severely.
It would be nice if someone might be able to give me some advice what's allowed and what not.
Is it possible that one day I can send him a package? Maybe if he sets me on his visit list?
I can send him books via amazon - only softcover or hardcover too?
Please help me out here!

I don't know if correspondence is limited (paper, envelopes, hand written vs typed?). Sending packages is not allowed in any federal prison. Books are in the middle of a possible change too, but the existing policy, for now anyway, is that you can send him either paperbacks or hard backed books as long as they arrive in the US Postal mail from either a bookstore or from the publisher. Amazon is OK.

Write him a letter and ask what books you can send before you do. Some of the supermax bop prisons do not allow hardback books, so DR might be the same.

He won't tell me because he doesn't want that I spend my money on him.
So I'll just send softcover
A really nice member wrote me a message already and gave me some advice
