I have sent 2 at a time. But they can only have so many at a time total. I was told 8 or 10. Or something. It may be different depending on where they are.

I think they are allowed to have 10 at a time in cell. Then they have to put extras in library or share with others. My son says they are not to strick about it though. I usually send 5 also that way I get free shipping .

I've ordered new and used to be sent for my Husband on Amazon and he received them. He's in Federal, and 5 is the limit he can get at one time.

I'm pretty sure they have to be new in State prison in Ca. You can call the mail room of the facility he is at and they would know for sure.

After the books are read they can ship them home but it costs them . My son just shares with others or puts in library.

Can the books be shipped from Amazon? Here in az, the state prison says they have to be sent from the publisher. I would call the mail room but they never answer =/
