I've only sent books and I usually use Barnes and noble, just use the normal mailing address for your fiancé and there is a box to check that says it can't be serviced by UPS make sure that is checked. I've also sent puzzle books, and origami through BN and haven't had a problem with it.

I've gotten several magazine subscriptions, you just order them and pay with their inmate number and mailing address. So if you want to order, say, National Geographic, go to their web site and order a subscription with your LO's mailing info and your billing info. I haven't tried a newspaper but I assume it's the same deal.

For books, I think most mail rooms are not taking Amazon any more, so Barnes & Noble is a good way to go. I've heard the issue with Amazon is that they're not including receipts any more so there's no proof the book comes directly from Amazon which is kind of ridiculous.

My son is in a different state but I called the DOC for his state & asked their policy. I went to a site to order magazines & they have been coming. It took about 2 months to get it set up. The site was very good priced. 6 magazines for $20. Right now I see they have a special that's 7 magazines for $20. http://www.inmatemagazineservice.com/
I did order books through Amazon for him.

Are you just useing books direct from barnes and nobles or too by the whole book stores who offers used books? Will the used books come in too? I mean I already have sent my fiance a Amazon book the prison refused it BUT the used book from one of the used book sellers get to him. So do you have any advice please? i want to order him a book I already ordered him a used book but this place told me they DONT put papers in it, so they dont put a dilevery slip in. Should I send it to him like that too or not? Any advice
