Welcome to Prison Talk and to the federal forums. I hope you get answers from someone who knows, but the time anything takes in the bop always depends on the counselor who is handling it.

I got calls and emails this morning. But I just got one saying that they were on Lockdown again around lunch but were let out. I think SHU is full. Maybe something happened in your LOís pod and they have it locked down until they have room?

Has anyone had any success getting books sent to their LO at USP Big Sandy? I know they say it has to come directly from the bookstore, but so far, everything has been returned. Any bookstores that have worked out for y’all?

I had luck with one book out of many. That one was sent from Amazon & they rejected several others from Amazon, & Barnes & Noble's. It's very frustrating. On my next visit, I plan on asking them what the issue is.

If you find out anything, please let me know. Iím trying Books-a-million this time to see if that works. I know it has to have the publisher or bookstoreís name on the return address and amazon is not always great about that. Itís so annoying. I just want to get him a dictionary because it embarrasses him when he misspells something or has to ask me what something I write means. It hurts my heart that I canít seem to get him one.

Also make sure that the bookstore or publisher ships by US Mail, not Fedex or UPS. If the books are delivered that way, then the denial is being done by the bop mailroom staff, with or without justification.
